Job Number:
Organization: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Posted: 12/30/2021
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Atlanta,  GA    USA
Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis, and this posting will remain open until filled.

CDC Office and Location: A fellowship opportunity is currently available with the Epidemiology Workforce Branch (EWB)'s Epidemiology Competency-based Curriculum (EpiCC) Team within the Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD), under the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

EWB provides applied epidemiology training and service programs for future public health professionals and the existing workforce. The branch runs the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program, the Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) fellowship, and Student Programs and Partnerships. EIS and LLS are premiere training programs that give health professionals a 2-year, postgraduate stint on the front lines of public health, learning and practicing epidemiology in more than 100 field investigations in the United States and around the world. Student Programs and Partnerships houses the CDC Science Ambassador Fellowship and the Epidemiology Elective Program.

Research Project: This ORISE fellowship is for a curriculum designer opportunity with the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). EIS is CDC’s globally-recognized 2-year, postgraduate fellowship program and long- standing model of worldwide public health and epidemiology in action. Also known as disease detectives, EIS has trained over 3,900 ready- responders who have served a gamut of public health issues since the program’s inception in 1951. About 10% of EIS training occurs through a rigorous mix of small and large group classroom instruction, case studies, exercises, and e-learning. About 90% of the training is provided through hands-on assignments under the guidance of seasoned mentors and supervisors (usually EIS alumni).

In this fellowship opportunity, the ORISE fellow will train with Epidemiology Competency-based Curriculum leadership and team. The fellowship will provide the ORISE fellow with the opportunity to develop expertise in curriculum development, project management, subject matter expertise in epidemiology, and leadership skills with the branch that is home to several of CDC’s premier fellowships.

During this fellowship, the fellow can expect to train with public health professionals to gain a variety of skills and experience by assisting with and participating in the following: •Development and evaluation of effective training agendas and materials, such as case studies, experiential learning, and classroom activities, to introduce basic public health and epidemiology concepts. •Management and maintenance of both synchronous and asynchronous public health curriculum. •Facilitation of updates to the EIS curriculum core activities of learning, scientific writing instruction, and surveillance evaluation instruction, to introduce quality science standards and diversity, equity, and inclusion principles into learning. •Engagement with internal and external partners, such as offices across CDC, state and local health departments, universities, and national public health organizations, to innovate and expand program activities. •Mentorship and outreach with EIS and LLS officers participating in the program to support their competency development and enhance their experiential learning experience. •Drafting technical reports using program data and presenting them to a variety of audiences, including CDC leaders and partners.

Learning Objectives: The selected ORISE fellow will have the opportunity to be stationed at CDC, one of the world's most prestigious public health agencies, in a dynamic and fast-paced environment. They will have ample opportunity to participate in a wide-range of projects and training opportunities in a Division focused on providing the best opportunities for those interested in careers in public health.
