The Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (APHIF) offers an opportunity for recent graduates to acquire and develop public health informatics skills during a high quality, on-the-job training program in public health practice. Fellows work closely with highly trained and experienced informaticians, epidemiologists and public health practitioners at the state and local level, as well as with those working at the federal level with the CDC. Program participants will develop a comprehensive set of core skills through applied competency-based training and experiences. At the end of the fellowship, graduates will have an accelerated training in practical public health informatics. Fellows will receive a stipend, health insurance allowance, and professional development funding. Fellow applications will be accepted until January 30, 2015.
The Health Systems Integration Program (HSIP) aims to place public health practitioners with a strong background in epidemiology or informatics at State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial health departments. The fellows will be involved in activities that address 1) community epidemiologic surveillance to support community health needs assessments, 2) the public health interface and use of electronic health records, and 3) lessons learned from successful public health and primary care professional partnerships. Fellows will receive a stipend, health insurance allowance, and professional development funding. Fellow applications will be accepted until February 16, 2015.
The Informatics-Training in Place Program (I-TIPP) is an innovative approach to bring relevant on-the-job training to appropriate health department staff. I-TIPP aims to train the existing workforce while they are employed in a health department. This program is designed for individuals with an interest in gaining more training and experience in public health informatics. This one-year applied training program will provide an overview on various topics within public health informatics with a particular emphasis on meaningful use and surveillance system improvement. Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2015.
