Felowship Program 

The fellowship will offer a public health professional the opportunity to spend one year working in Washington, D.C., on legislative, regulatory and policy issues that would benefit from the input of someone with public health expertise.
APHA is looking for candidates with strong public health credentials who wish to work in a congressional office on legislative and policy issues related to health and the environment. The fellowship will begin in January
2008 and continue through December 2008. The fellowship is designed to provide a unique public policy learning experience, to demonstrate the value of science-government interaction, and to make practical contributions to enhancing public health science and practical knowledge in government. The process of applying for this fellowship is an open competition. A committee of APHA leaders and policy experts will review the applications and select the finalists. The application is due to APHA by July 20, 2007. The committee will make its decision by September 30, 2007. All candidates must have a MPH or a Doctorate in a public health discipline plus 5 years of experience in a public health setting.
