Notice to Readers: Preventive Medicine Residency Application Deadline --- October 1, 2008

CDC's Preventive Medicine Residency (PMR) program is accepting applications from physicians with public health and applied epidemiology experience. Application materials must be postmarked by October 1, 2008 for the 12-month program that begins in mid-June 2009.

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 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 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.

Additional information regarding the residency, eligibility criteria, and application process is available at or by calling 404-498-6140.
