Public & Population Health Informatics (PHI) Fellowships

Public & Population Health Informatics (PHI) Fellowships

Would you like to:

     • improve the health and wellness of hundreds, thousands and, potentially, millions of
       patients using advanced analytics?

     • combat significant public health problems, such as the opioid, obesity or diabetes
       epidemics, using information technologies?

     • support the implementation of accountable care approaches that help coordinate
       healthcare delivery for large patient populations?

Why you should be in this program:

Public & Population Health Informatics…

     • applies the science of informatics to the growing needs of health systems and public
       health agencies to rapidly detect and study emergent phenomena;

     • identifies potential interventions to address health system challenges;

     • measures effectiveness of interventions designed to address those challenges; and

     • translates proven interventions into practice across health systems.

What you will learn:

Building on your existing skills and knowledge, you will learn things like:

     • managing and analyzing large datasets in healthcare or public health organizations;

     • developing and using analytical methods to address population health challenges;

     • translating basic and clinical research findings into operational population-based
       settings;

     • designing, developing and evaluating health IT programs and tools in PHI; and

     • using social and/or behavioral science disciplines (e.g., economics, sociology, psychology)
       and applying concepts and methods from these disciplines and their applied counterparts
       (e.g., organizational behavior, human-computer interaction) to solve PHI problems.
