CDC Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness (PE) Fellowship
Prevention effectiveness research helps policymakers, Congress, and other government agencies make informed decisions about health promotion and disease prevention programs.
PE fellows enhance CDC’s response to emerging health threats.
The CDC Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness (PE) Fellowship fills a critical need to demonstrate the value of prevention. The PE Fellowship builds CDC’s capacity to assess the effectiveness and value of public health interventions and evidence-based decision-making. The goal of this fellowship is to ensure there are well-trained health economists with expertise in policy analysis and skills to consider economic issues in public health programs. For more than 20 years, CDC has recruited and trained highly effective health economists through the PE Fellowship, the largest 2-year postdoctoral training program of its kind in the United States.
Beginning in 2021, the PE Fellowship began offering the Public Health Analytics and Modeling Track as an option within the fellowship. The goal of this track is to grow CDC’s capabilities around advanced analytics and infectious disease modeling.
