ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellowship Program

The Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellowship Program was established by the ASPPH, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in honor of Dr. Allan Rosenfield, former Dean of the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, who dedicated his career to improving the health of the world's most vulnerable populations. The purpose of the fellowship program is to enhance training of graduates of the schools of public health with an interest in global health.

The program provides recent graduates of ASPPH member accredited graduate programs in public health an outstanding training opportunity to learn from leading global health experts in CDC headquarters in Atlanta as well as various international posts. The students selected as the Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows are expected to involve themselves in all aspects of global health.

The training offered through this program will expand the global health prevention workforce and provide fellows an opportunity to gain practical, first-hand experience working on the front lines of global public health. Fellows will benefit from an opportunity to apply and translate academic knowledge to real world public health situations.

ASPPH fellowships provide recent graduates of ASPPH members with public health training experiences based at federal agencies, state/local health departments, and on Capitol Hill. The duration of the fellowships ranges from 12-24 months depending on the program.
