Service and training are at the core of the Fellowship Program. Through public service on-the-job training Fellows will have opportunities to strengthen and apply knowledge, contribute to a range of communities, sharpen skills and develop strong networks with a range of public health professionals.
The training component of the program is organized around a set of competencies and includes participation in monthly meetings, attendance at state and national conferences and in some cases continued coursework.
Further, Fellows complete a set of performance requirements over their two-year placement. These requirements represent some of the skill sets necessary for successful public health research and program endeavors. Training is guided by the assistance of an on-site preceptor who can provide oversight of career growth and technical assistance.
Examples of current projects undertaken by Fellows include:
