APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement
Since 1984, APTR has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a Cooperative Agreement that has made possible activities that improve and increase collaborations between academic preventive medicine and public health.  Activities have included extramural funding and APTR (in-house) projects. 

In 2012, APTR was honored to sign a new five-year cooperative agreement with the CDC to carry-out:

  1. Centers of Innovation for Improving Health
  2. Collection of data on graduate public health programs and their graduates
  3. Workforce Improvement Projects (WIPs)
  4. Fellowships

Current Initiatives

APTR Preventive Medicine and Public Health Fellowship Program

Fellowship opportunities in public health and preventive medicine interest areas are available with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the APTR Preventive Medicine and Public Health Fellowship Program. Fellows gain leadership experience in public health practice and policy, access to state-of-the-art technology and national databases, and train with leading experts in the field of preventive medicine and public health.

Census of Graduate Programs in Public Health

APTR and its Council of Graduate Programs in Public Health conducts an annual survey of all graduate programs in the United States that grant MPH and related degrees. This Census of Graduate Programs in Public Health seeks to inform the public health community about MPH Program institutions, curriculum, and students. The Census is an important tool for helping raise awareness about the important contributions of graduate programs.
