Notice to Readers: Preventive Medicine Residency Application Deadline --- October 11, 2006

The Preventive Medicine Residency (PMR) is accepting applications from physicians with public health and applied epidemiologic practice experience who seek to become preventive medicine/population health specialists and public health leaders. The PMR prepares physicians 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 spend the practicum year at CDC or in a state or local health department.

PMR alumni occupy many leadership positions at CDC, at state and local health departments, and in academia and private-sector agencies. Completion of the PMR, 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 mid-June 2007. Application materials must be postmarked by October 11, 2006. Additional information regarding the residency, eligibility criteria, and application process is available at or by telephone, 404-498-6140.
