The Pathways Cohort 3 Application is live and closes on April 5th!

The California Pathways into Public Health Pathways Fellowship Program is a paid training and job placement program for aspiring public health professionals to gain experience working at a local health department. Throughout the program, Pathways Fellows will build their public health professional capacity, specifically building proficiency in core skills and competencies that support their ability to deliver the 10 Essential Public Health Services (EPHS).

Pathways Fellows support local health department host sites by conducting a wide range of entry-level public health activities. Key job duties may include (but are not limited to):

  • Communicable disease intervention activities
  • Emergency preparedness activities
  • Health education/communications and community outreach
  • Public health program planning, implementation, and evaluation activities

Upon completing the program, Pathways Fellows are more qualified to apply for permanent positions with local health departments or other public health agencies.
