Notice to Readers: Application Deadline for The CDC Experience Applied Epidemiology Fellowship --- December 5, 2008

The CDC Experience is a 1-year fellowship in applied epidemiology that is designed for rising third- and fourth-year medical students and aims to develop a pool of physicians with a population health perspective. Eight competitively selected fellows spend 10--12 months at CDC in Atlanta, Georgia, where they conduct epidemiologic analyses in various areas of public health. The fellowship environment provides multiple opportunities to enhance skills in research and analytic thinking, written and oral scientific presentations, and preventive medicine and public health practices.

Previous experience in public health is not required to apply for this program. Through this training, fellows will acquire practical tools useful for approaching population-based health problems, whether in an entire community or among their own community of patients. Graduates will have an understanding of the role of epidemiology in medicine and health and will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to enhance their clinical acumen and help improve the quality of the U.S. health-care system.

Information on applying for The CDC Experience is available at Applications for the fellowship class of 2009--10 must be postmarked by December 5, 2008. Questions can be addressed to Catherine Piper, program coordinator, at e-mail,
