Replenishing an underfunded and depleted public health workforce

CSTE Foundation Development Initiatives

The Applied Epidemiology Fellowship Program

This highly successful two-year fellowship program has placed recent master’s and doctoral level epidemiology graduates in state and local public health departments. Given the potential absorption capacity and demand for this program, the goal of this effort will be to expand the annual class size to six per year over a 5-year period. Learn more.

The Jeffrey P. Davis Student Scholarship Fund

This newly named fund provides opportunities for public health students to network with applied epidemiologists at the CSTE Annual Conference. The scholarship fund builds on the existing CSTE Student Scholarship, which has awarded eight student scholarships since its inception in 2016. CSTEF plans to increase the number of student scholarships awarded with a long-term goal of up to 35 scholarships awarded annually. Scholarships will be competitive and involve coordination with individual colleges and universities. Learn more.

 Applied Epidemiology Leadership Training

Today’s epidemiologists must be able to assert themselves in time of disasters, cutting through deterrents and using their science background to provide reliable information to the public. Much of the training will focus on coordinating outbreak responses, crisis management, advanced communications training for the medical community, media, general community education, and political leaders.  Learn more.
