Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program, CDC

The Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (PHIFP) provides on-the-job training for professionals to apply expertise in information science, computer science, and information technology to address current and future informatics needs. While working in CDC programs to enhance our agency’s informatics workforce, fellows help state and local health departments and international public health agencies solve complex public health informatics challenges.

Public health informatics is the systematic application of knowledge about systems that capture, manage, analyze and use information to improve population-level health outcomes. The Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program (PHIFP) provides applied public health informatics training to fellows to apply computer science and information technology to public health problems.

PHIFP is a 2-year, competency-based training program in public health informatics. Fellows are placed in assignments at centers, institutes, and offices (CIO’s) across CDC as well as at other federal, state, and local public health departments where they engage in experiential training to enhance the agency’s informatics workforce.

The following list includes routine tasks for PHIFP fellows:

  • Working with teams involved in research and development of public health information systems.
  • Conducting informatics evaluations on complex public health information systems.
  • Contributing to CDC’s emergency response activities.
  • Providing technical assistance to state and local health departments and international public health agencies through short-term assignments, or Info-Aids.
