Informatics Training in Place Program (I-TIPP)
The Informatics Training in Place Program (I-TIPP) is a pilot program aimed at addressing public health informatics (PHI) training needs at CDC and in state and local health departments. I-TIPP is designed to build informatics knowledge and skills of workers while they remain on their jobs. I-TIPP fellows gain access to an array of CDC resources and informatics subject matter experts, and apply new information directly to projects while on-the-job.
