Notice to Readers: The CDC Experience Application Deadline --- December 4, 2006

The CDC Experience is a 1-year fellowship in applied epidemiology that is tailored for rising third- and fourth-year medical students and aims to develop a pool of physicians with a population health perspective. Eight competitively selected fellows spend 10--12 months at CDC in Atlanta, Georgia, where they conduct epidemiologic analyses in areas of public health that interest them. The fellowship environment provides multiple opportunities to enhance skills in research and analytic thinking, written and oral scientific presentations, and the practices of preventive medicine and public health.

Applicants do not need experience in public health to apply for this program. Through this training, fellows will acquire practical tools useful for approaching population-based health problems, whether in an entire community or among their own community of patients. Graduates of The CDC Experience have an appreciation of the role of epidemiology in medicine and health and are able to apply their knowledge and skills to enhance their clinical acumen and help improve the quality of the U.S. health-care system.

Information on applying for The CDC Experience is available at http://www.cdcfoundation.org/thecdcexperience. Applications for The CDC Experience fellowship class of 2006--07 must be postmarked by December 4, 2006. Questions can be addressed to Catherine Piper, program coordinator, at e-mail, cpiper@cdc.gov.
