Announcement: Preventive Medicine Residency and Fellowship Applications Deadline --- September 15, 2011
The 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 are encouraged to apply.
The PMR/F prepares clinicians for leadership roles in public health at international, 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. Development of leadership and management competency is emphasized. Residents and fellows conduct their training at a CDC location or in a state or local health department.
PMR/F alumni occupy many leadership positions at CDC, at state and local health departments, in academia, and in private-sector agencies. Completion of the residency, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for 24 months of training, qualifies graduates to apply for certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine. Select candidates can be considered for 1 year of residency training that also should qualify for application for ABPM certification. Training for PMF clinicians also is 1 year.
Applications are being accepted for the class that begins in mid-June 2012. Applications must be submitted online by September 15, 2011, and supporting documents must be received in the PMR/F office by that same day. Additional information regarding the programs, eligibility criteria, and application process is available at http://www.cdc.gov/prevmed, by telephone at 404-498-6140, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
