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 postdoctoral 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
- 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.
