Announcements: Preventive Medicine Residency and Fellowship Application Deadline --- September 15, 2010
CDC's Preventive Medicine Residency and Fellowship (PMR/F) programs are accepting applications from physicians for the residency and from veterinarians, dentists, nurses, physician assistants, and international medical graduates for the fellowship. Applicants with public health and applied epidemiologic practice experience who seek to become preventive medicine and population health specialists and public health leaders may apply.
PMR/F programs prepare clinicians for leadership roles in public health at federal, state, and local levels through instruction and supervised practical experiences focused on translating epidemiology to public health practice, management, and policy and program development. Residents and fellows spend the practicum year at CDC or at a state or local health department.
PMR/F alumni occupy leadership positions at CDC, at state and local health departments, and in academia and private-sector agencies. Completion of the residency, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for 12 months of practicum training, qualifies graduates to apply for certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine.
Applications are being accepted for the class that begins in June 2011. The application must be submitted online by September 15, 2010, and supporting documents must be postmarked for delivery to the PMR/F office by September 22, 2010. Additional information regarding the programs, eligibility criteria, and application process is available online (http://www.cdc.gov/prevmed), by telephone (404-498-6140), or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
