Mission

Enhance Georgia’s state and local public health programs by training exceptional epidemiologists who passionately serve their communities through critical surveillance, outbreak response, and general public health practice.


Vision

We aim to support new epidemiologists and increase epidemiologic capacity throughout the state to serve communities in Georgia both now and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Program Overview

The Rollins COVID-19 Epidemiology Fellowship Program is a 2-year intensive training program. Fellows will be assigned to 1 of the 18 Georgia health districts, the Georgia Department of Public Health, or the ECRC.

This exciting opportunity allows Fellows to be a part of a Rollins COVID-19 Epidemiology Fellows Network. This provides networking opportunities to share experiences, challenges, best practices and ideas for integration into health departments and assisting with the COVID-19 response. As an example, check out photos and activities from our first ever Rollins COVID-19 Epi Fellows Retreat here

Additionally, Fellows have access to practice-based and career development resources including continuing education training, management training, seminar/speaker series, and a close connection to RSPH faculty familiar with benefits afforded to local health departments by having a close relationship with an academic institution.

The Fellows have opportunities to complete COVID-19-related practice projects within their district that combines all program competencies.
