Public Health Fellowship Program
The Ministry of Health (MOH) in partnership with Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S CDC) is implementing the Public Health Fellowship Program (PHFP), an initiative to develop the next generation of public health leadership for Uganda. The goal of this program is to develop a competent workforce by learning-through-service and responding to real public health problems of Uganda.
The PHFP is offered in five tracks, namely:
• Field Epidemiology Track (FET);
• Laboratory Systems Track;
• Health Informatics Track;
• Health Economics (Prevention Effectiveness) Track, and
• Monitoring and Evaluation Track.
Currently, only the Field Epidemiology Track is operational.
The FET is a 2-year training-through service program in applied epidemiology and public health leadership. Fellows develop competencies by providing valuable public health services to the Ministry of Health and District Health Teams; 80% of the fellows' time will be spent on field projects with supervision and mentorship provided by Moh, U.S. CDC and MakSPH, with an anticipated 20% spent in interactive didactic training. Competency domains include field epidemiology (Public health surveillance, outbreak investigation, and applied epidemiologic investigation), scientific and nonscientific communication, public health programming, and management and leadership.
Fellows will prove development of these competencies by completing a portfolio of projects, in each of these domains. Fellows will serve in priority technical units of the Ministry of Health, regional or district health agencies to complete this portfolio under the supervision and mentorship of national and international subject-area experts.
Number of Fellowships on offer: In 2021, the program will offer ten (10) Fellowships in the Field Epidemiology Track.
