The Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship (APHIF) is an opportunity to build informatics, data science, and laboratory capacity at state and local health departments while training recent masters or doctoral graduates in applied public health practice. The goals of the 2-year fellowship program are to provide a high-quality training experience and for fellows to explore career opportunities at state and local health departments. CSTE has previously supported several classes of informatics fellows and is excited to be reviving this program, this time in close connection with CSTE’s Data Science Team Training program . Sites participating in DSTT will be given priority when applying to host an applied public health informatics fellow, and fellows will contribute to DSTT projects & activities.

APHIF is a 2-year program where recent graduates and early career professionals work in a state or local health agency under the guidance of two experienced mentors. Fellows are matched to a host site with demonstrated capacity to provide technical training, research opportunities, and opportunities for experience in the application of public health informatics in a practical setting.
