CDC Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness Fellowship

More About the Program

Goal

The Fellowship’s primary goal is to establish a cadre of quantitative policy analysts at CDC whose work provides information for health policy decision-makers regarding allocation and use of resources to maximize health impact.

 

Overview

The PEF was established to address demand in the field of public health for economics-based inquiry, quantitative policy analysis, and integrative health services research. The PEF is a 2-year, post-doctoral, applied training program. Fellows are assigned to various CDC Centers, Institute, and Offices (CIOs) where they assess the public health impact of policies, programs, and practices by determining their cost, effectiveness, and overall impact.

The PEF provides classroom training and hands-on experience to support the development of valuable research skills. After an introduction to basic public health sciences and prevention effectiveness methods, fellows are assigned to a CDC program area where they take a lead role in prevention effectiveness studies.

Assignment activities include

  • Designing and conducting studies
  • Working closely with national and international experts in public health
  • Presenting and publishing results
  • Providing technical assistance and service on specific projects or methods

In addition, professional support and career development are provided through 

  • Didactic training
  • Workshops
  • Research seminars
  • Peer discussion groups
