Are you a medical student looking for something different to do
next year? We want people - just like you!
Do you want an experience that offers an opportunity to enhance
your research skills, build leadership potential, and improve your
clinical acumen via a population health perspective, all by working
on real-life problems in a diverse work environment? Then consider
applying to The CDC Experience!
The CDC Experience Applied Epidemiology Fellowship is a one-year
fellowship tailored for rising 3rd- and 4th-year medical students,
designed to increase the pool of physicians with a population
health perspective. Eight competitively selected fellows spend
10-12 months at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) offices in Atlanta, GA, where they carry out epidemiologic
analyses in various areas of public health. Examples of previous
and current areas of concentration include viral and bacterial
diseases, cardiovascular health, obesity prevention, birth defects,
STDs, injury prevention, and air pollution and respiratory
What current fellows and alumni have to say about their
"Every day has been filled with people talking about the
incredible ways that epidemiologists impact health, and it's
refreshingly practical. They understand how to crunch the numbers
to acutely illuminate health-related issues, and respond to people
in need. Even more, they get to collaborate with policymakers and
understand how the system works overall. I feel more empowered to
establish sustainable change and understand the greater context of
health than before. It's as if I am finally learning the secrets of
how change actually happens, and it reminds me of why I went into
Medicine." - Geoff Hart-Cooper, Class of 2012
I will forever draw on my experience and skills learned this
year to better critically evaluate science, lead teams, and hone my
writing and presentation skills… I would like to be an
academic surgeon and practice clinically. However, this year has
really opened my eyes to the role the public health and
epidemiology can have in research and academics. While I would like
to work "downstream" clinically, I think my experiences here have
inspired me to focus my research efforts more "upstream" (i.e.
research demographic/epidemiologic risk factors for a certain
injury/pathology but still be able to see and treat that specific
patient in the operating room). - Fernando Ovalle, Class of
"I came to this fellowship with a strong interest in public
health, but felt very disconnected from that dream while in medical
school. My fellowship experience not only re-motivated me for a
career in public health, but showed me the array of options
available. I feel less like my interest in public health was some
far-fetched dream and am now more committed than ever to find my
way back to this arena." - Diya Surie, Class of 2010
This experience was an incredible introduction to the breadth of
topics in public health thanks to my mentors being sure to involve
me in a wide variety of projects. This exposure revealed the many
career options available through public health. Also, I had little
experience in research prior to the fellowship. The skills learned
from going through the entire research process from proposal to
publishing will be very valuable in the future. - Charlene Wong,
Class of 2008
"I now have the confidence to bring a public health perspective
to clinical medicine. Before participating in the fellowship, I
could talk about some of the things that public health was about
but didn't think I could lead the way in incorporating public
health, either through research or practice - now I can. I will use
the skills I gained to better my clinical practice and continue to
act as an ambassador for public health and its role in clinical
institutions." - Adrian Flores, Class of 2006
"The year I spent in Atlanta was such an important part of my
career development. The Fellowship was such a great experience; the
further along I progress in my career the more I realize how
valuable the experience has been to my professional development." -
Jonathon Neyer, Class of 2006
