Public Health Careers for Research Trainees
If you are interested in more public health opportunities, then consider joining the American Public Health Association. The nice thing about public health careers is that all biomedical science areas will find some aspect of public health to relate to. Learn about current issues related to policy. Access factsheets to support your research for presentations. There PhD jobs on the bottom of the front page, Current jobs at the time of this post include assistant professor positions, postdoctoral scholar, methodologists, teaching, and health research associate positions https://apha.org/. We believe in engaging in associations in your industry. Our industry specific courses suggest associations to join before applying to jobs.

American Public Health Association Fellowships
We do like that the American Public Health Association has a location for internships. Internships are offered in government relations, public health policy, health education, and communications. Internships are for graduate students and postgraduate degree students. A fellowship is also listed, the APHA Public Health Fellowship in Government. Fellowships are typically longer than internships. Fellowships can be 1-2 years and internships are typically 3-6 months. Fellowships and internships can be found here: https://apha.org/professional-development/apha-internships-and-fellowships
