Host-site applications are now being accepted from state and local public health agencies to host a fellow in class IV of the Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship program.

The Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (APHIF) is designed to give informatics fellows an accelerated training experience and on-the-job training at health departments in preparation for a career as public health informaticians at the state or local level. APHIF is one of three fellowship programs as part of Project SHINE (Strengthening Health Systems through Interprofessional Education). Project SHINE is supported by Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), and the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII). 

Interested host sites are invited to attend an informational webinar session on strategies for successful applications to host an APHIF Fellow. The informational session will be held on Thursday, October 30, 2014, 2-3pm ET. Join the session using this link and the password: epi1234.
