APHL offers fellowships for post-doctoral candidates who wish to extend their training in public health laboratory science, practice and management.

Public Health Laboratory Fellowship

APHL is working with CDC to design a competency-based public health laboratory fellowship/associate program that supports various disciplines critical to workforce needs. The program will include an updated infectious diseases laboratory program, formerly known as the Emerging Infectious Diseases Fellowship program, which is currently on hiatus. Please check this website for updates in the fall of 2016.

Newborn Screening Laboratory Fellowship

The Newborn Screening Laboratory Fellowship funds a doctorate-level candidate to conduct newborn screening and/or genetics research in a public health laboratory. The two-year fellowship provides intensive training in newborn screening laboratory practice at a state public health laboratory, and an introduction to newborn screening follow-up, treatment and management.
