  • HSIP Fellow Applications will be accepted: February 3- March 31, 2014

CSTE in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers (ASTHO), the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), and the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) established the fellowship to train practitioners experience in epidemiology or medicine in the expanding field of public health and primary care integration.  The HSIP Fellowship is designed for practitioners with a doctoral degree or at least four years of experience and a master’s degree

Health Systems Integration Program. The HSIP Fellowship aims to place public health practitioners with a strong background in epidemiology or informatics at public health departments.  Historically, public health and primary care professionals have worked in isolation, but the recent push for better outcomes in population health has called for these two sectors to align and collaborate more effectively together. Over the one year program the Fellow will be involved in projects that address community epidemiologic surveillance to support community health needs assessments, the public health interface and use of electronic health records, and sharing lessons learned from successful public health and primary care professional partnerships.  Fellows will have a Master’s degree or higher with a commitment to working in applied public health.

Fellows are supported through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are matched to available host site locations. Assignments will begin in July 2014 and the program commitment is one year.

Training & Benefits The HSIP Fellowship offers an opportunity to work closely with highly trained and experienced epidemiologists, health officers, and informaticians at the state, local and federal levels.  The Fellow will be provided a competitive stipend ($85,000). In addition to the stipend, up to $320 per month ($3,840 per year) will be available to defray the costs for individual health insurance coverage selected by the Fellow.  Professional development, conference travel, and relocation funding is also available.
