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 prepares public health and clinical health professions students to address population health challenges at the national and community level. This program seeks to meet the current and future health needs of the public by providing mini-grant funds to implement a Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators project within a student's community or at their academic institution. Since 2002, more than 500 students from over 160 academic institutions have become Paul Ambrose Scholars.
