The Population Health Training in Place Program (PH-TIPP) is accepting applications for the 2020 class through February 28, 2020. PH-TIPP is a professional development opportunity for current employees in public, private, and academic organizations. Participants learn to design, launch, and assess population health improvement programs; develop or analyze health policy; and conduct formal program evaluations.
PH-TIPP participants are in leadership and management roles in public, private, and academic organizations. They are physicians, veterinarians, or nurses with a master of public health (MPH) or doctoral-level scientists (PhD or equivalent) with coursework equivalent to a MPH. Candidates may not be in another training program while participating in PH-TIPP.

Benefits of PH-TIPP:

  • Participants receive formal mentoring and training from experts both internal and external to CDC while staying in their current jobs.
  • Supervisors can support the professional development goals of their employees at little cost to the organization.
  • Organizations can more effectively apply population health practices to protect and improve the health of their communities.

Participants must complete population health projects that address the following two Preventive Medicine Residency and Fellowship project areas: Policy Analysis and Development and Program Evaluation. Participants may focus on a single topic and examine both project areas within that topic, or they may focus on a different topic for each project area. The projects must be part of the participant’s current routine tasks.

Physicians who complete all training requirements will receive a certificate of completion that will help them apply for the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM)external icon exam via the Complementary Pathwayexternal icon.

The program anticipates that it will have space for at least 5 CDC staff and 5 external staff but may consider expanding the class size if demand and funding allow. For more information about eligibility requirements and application information, visit the PH-TIPP website:
