The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) would like to ensure that, if and when the next public health emergency occurs, our community is ready to respond.
Governor Cuomo recently announced the establishment of the New York State Public Health Corps (NYSPHC) Fellowship Program, which will build public health capacity to support COVID-19 vaccination operations and to increase preparedness for future public health emergencies. As part of this program, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) will work with community partners to identify and train up to 1,000 fellows to provide critical support and services to local health departments.
LCDOH is encouraging qualified NYSPHC fellows to apply in order to augment the public health workforce in Livingston County and other communities across the state. Candidates for the full-time, paid NYSPHC Fellowship Program include recent graduates and students advanced in their studies in public health programs, nursing schools and medical schools, retired medical professionals, and laypeople, each of whom will be concurrently enrolled in Cornell University’s Public Health Essentials Certificate Program.
Individuals with training in public health, medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacology/pharmacy, allied health, social services, communications and information technology, logistics planning, education, and emergency health programs are encouraged to apply.
