CDC Office and Location: Two fellowship opportunities are available with the Behavioral and Clinical Surveillance Branch (BCSB), Division of HIV Prevention (DHP), within the National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Successful applicants will be required to re-locate to Atlanta for the fellowship appointment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
Research Project: There are two research opportunities available, one bilingual in Spanish and English, at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Division of HIV Prevention (DHP), Behavioral and Clinical Surveillance Branch (BCSB) for a post-graduate fellow interested in learning about the design, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of a national behavioral and clinical survey among people with HIV. The fellow will join a high-priority, high-impact project focusing on HIV in the United States. With 23 participating health department jurisdictions throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, the Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) provides crucial data on clinical and behavioral characteristics from the only nationally representative sample of persons with HIV. We disseminate MMP data to monitor issues affecting people with HIV, which range from describing racial disparities in viral load suppression to exploring the prevalence of depression and its effect on antiretroviral adherence. MMP collects data through personal interview and matched medical record abstraction. This fellowship will provide support for the MMP interview to learn how to design, implement, and evaluate survey methods and project activities.
