Description

A fellowship opportunity is currently available in the Immunization Services Division within the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta Georgia.

The fellow will assist the Immunization Services Division with creating and performing an evaluation of products, activities, and programs conducted by the Communications and Education Branch designed to improve immunization knowledge, uptake, and confidence. Evaluation components may include economic analysis, process analysis, and assessment of outcomes and impact.

The fellow will participate in the following activities:

  • Supporting NCIRD staff in development of a sound evaluation model that can be used to determine the success of the communications, education, or billing program.
  • Improving knowledge and understanding of, immunization programs, health care insurance, medical billing, and their relationship to services provided by public health.
  • Meeting with state immunization grantees, internal stakeholders, and national partners to allow for the collection and analysis of the data necessary for evaluation.
