Data Detectives: CDC Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program

Public health information systems are a cornerstone of effective public health practice. Public health and healthcare organizations need a competent workforce to not only help collect, process, and analyze data, but also support the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of complex information systems. The Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (PHIFP) provides public health informatics training for doctoral-or master’s-level professionals, applying computer science and information technology to solve public health problems.

Public Health Informatics: "Translating" knowledge for health

Public health data come in many “languages,” and informaticians are specialists in the science of translation. Informaticians are able to bridge different subfields, promoting more effective cooperation by helping people to share information. Check out the Public Health Informatics Institute video to learn more.
