In response to the need for a skilled workforce in applied epidemiology at state and local health departments, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) has established the Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH).

The goal of the Fellowship is to provide a high quality on-the-job training experience in applied epidemiology for recent graduates and to prepare Fellows for long-term career placement at the state and local level. Based on their career aspirations and available positions, Fellows are carefully matched to a state or local health agency or federal quarantine station for two years under the guidance of an experienced mentor.

During their tenure, Fellows will be expected to complete activities and achieve competencies related to epidemiologic methods, communication skills, public health practice, policy, and legal issues.


Eligibility Requirements:

  • An MPH, MSPH, MS in epidemiology, or equivalent degree or an advanced degree in a health-related field (i.e., PhD in epidemiology, biostatistics, or other public-health field; an MD degree; or a DVM degree).
  • Completed at least three graduate level epidemiology courses;
  • One graduate level biostatistics course;
  • Strong desire to pursue a career at the state or local level; and United State Citizenship.
