CDC Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness (PE) Fellowship Open Application Period

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Prevention Effectiveness (PE) Fellowship is a paid, full-time, 2-year post-doctoral research fellowship that provides experiential learning to assess the impact of public health policies, programs, and practices on health outcomes by determining their effectiveness, quality, and cost. The fellowship provides research opportunities that include the use of econometrics, decision science, simulation, and operations analysis and modeling to understand determinants of health, morbidity, mortality, health inequalities, healthcare use, and expenditures. The PE Fellowship builds a cadre of quantitative policy analysts whose research provides decision-makers at the CDC, congress, and non-governmental agencies vital information for allocating and using resources to maximize the impact of their public health programs. While most of the learning occurs in the field, the PE Fellowship sponsors a core set of didactic trainings that focus on five competency domains:

  • Analysis and assessment
  • Foundations for leadership
  • Interpersonal and professional communication skills
  • Policy analysis
  • Public health science and practice

The application period for the PE Fellowship is open now through January 6, 2023. For more information, please visit
