Training the Future Population Health Workforce
APTR is proud to provide training opportunities for students and graduates of APTR member institutions. Each of our programs offer unique opportunities that provide experience in prevention policy, research, and practice to public health professionals at various stages in their career.
Preventive Medicine, Public Health, and Health Communication APTR fellowships give recent graduates and early career professionals an opportunity to work in public health and preventive medicine interest areas.
APTR offers 2-4 month field placements in government agencies for Preventive Medicine residents (general preventive medicine/public health, occupational medicine and aerospace medicine) and Primary Care residents with demonstrated interest in public health.
APTR provides opportunities to apply public health knowledge gained in the classroom to real public health situations. Internships often last for a duration of 10 weeks during the summer or shorter periods during the academic year.
PAUL AMBROSE SCHOLARS PROGRAM
The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program exposes health professions students to influential public health professionals and prepares them to be leaders in addressing population health challenges at the national and community level. Scholarships are awarded to students to attend a four-day symposium in Washington, DC and conduct a community-based health education project at their institution. Since 2002, more than 460 students from over 160 academic institutions have become Paul Ambrose Scholars, equipped with leadership and organizational skills in public health education that can only be found outside of the classroom.
