Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Epidemiology Elective Program – Call for Applications

Are you a 3rd-year medical student interested in gaining public health, preventive medicine and applied epidemiology experience from CDC experts during your 4th year? If so, check out the CDC Epidemiology Elective Program for a six- to eight-week rotation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention!

During their time at CDC, Epidemiology Elective students have the opportunity to assist in epidemiologic investigations in areas such as infectious diseases, cancer, congenital malformations, environmental and occupational diseases, injuries, chronic diseases, and reproductive health. Students work on diverse projects; some have become co-authors on publications of major health importance, and others have participated in the investigation of public health problems in the field.

Most assignments are based at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. However, other assignments can be arranged, such as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in Cincinnati, Ohio, Morgantown, West Virginia, or Anchorage, Alaska; the Division of Vector-borne Infectious Diseases in Fort Collins, Colorado; or the Arctic Investigations Program in Anchorage, Alaska.

For students who wish to rotate in the fall semester of their 4th year (June to December 2016), the application deadline is March 30, 2016. These students will be notified by mid-July, or as soon as selections have been made.

For students who wish to rotate in the spring semester of their 4th year (January to May 2017), the application deadline is May 30, 2016. These students will be notified by mid-September, or as soon as selections have been made.

Dear Medical Students: 2016 Stanley M. Kaplan Essay Award for medical students.  

We have been pleased with the success of the Essay Contest since its inception in 1992.  Over the years, students from medical schools across the country have participated in the contest.  The submissions have covered a very broad range of topics and issues in psychiatry.  Students have uniformly appreciated and been enthusiastic about such a forum, and we hope the contest will continue to promote an interest in psychiatry among them.

We are requesting that entries be submitted electronically to christina.gibson@uc.edu.  The flyer contains further details about electronic submission requirements.Kaplan Essay Award Flyer
