The Indiana Training Program in Public & Population Health (PPH) Informatics is a fellowship program designed to educate and train the next generation of public health informaticians and is supported by the National Library of Medicine. The Program offers pre- and post-doctoral fellowships through the IU Fairbanks School of Public Health and leverages the Regenstrief Institute Public Health Informatics program to offer research opportunities.
Within the program, trainees work on projects such as:
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 PPH Informatics; 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 PPH problems.
Fellows will be actively enrolled in one of three PhD programs at the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI
Trainees in all PhD tracks will conduct active PHI research with IU and Regenstrief Institute faculty in conjunction with health systems, local, state, and federal public health agencies.
Our National Library of Medicine grant covers tuition, health insurance, books, and travel expenses and provides a monthly stipend.
Fellows will complete a customized plan of study in PPH Informatics while conducting research with faculty mentors at Indiana University and the Regenstrief Institute.
Training will include grant writing, teaching, and PPH service to prepare individuals for research-oriented careers.
