Gilstrap OBGYN Fellowship in Sexually Transmitted, Emerging, and Remerging Infectious Disease

The CDC Foundation, in collaboration with the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is offering a one-to-two-year fellowship in honor of Dr. Larry Gilstrap to bridge the clinical practice of obstetrics and gynecology with public health by working with various groups at CDC. During their time in the fellowship, prior fellows published in an array of journals and presented their work at conferences and meetings, as well as working with state health departments. Fellows have gone on to continue work at CDC and in clinical obstetrics and gynecology.

The Gilstrap OBGYN Fellowship is a full-time position beginning in July 2022 for one year or two years depending on funds. The fellowship will provide training focused on public health surveillance research, clinical guideline development, emerging and reemerging infectious diseases, sexually transmitted infections, and other reproductive health issues with special emphasis on infections during pregnancy. The fellow will be hired by the CDC Foundation and assigned to the CDC in Atlanta, Georgia to the Division of STD Prevention (DSTDP) and will participate in collaborations with the Division of Reproductive Health (DRH) and the Division of Birth Defects and Infant Disorders (DBDID). The CDC Foundation offers a competitive salary commensurate with post-graduate training and experience as well as an attractive benefi ts package. The Gilstrap OBGYN Fellowship does not involve clinical duties; however, fellows can continue to practice clinically outside of their five-day work week fellowship hours.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The primary goal of this fellowship is to provide a unique public health training experience for physicians clinically trained in obstetrics and gynecology who seek to further their training and expertise in public health surveillance, research, programmatic planning, and clinical guideline development. Upon completion, fellows will have critical skills for future positions in academic obstetrics and gynecology, public health departments, and federal, state, territorial, or local public health agencies with a focus on maternal and child health (MCH), STI/HIV prevention, and infectious diseases.

The scope and nature of the fellow’s projects during their tenure will be determined in consultation with CDC and CDC Foundation colleagues. Primary projects will involve evaluating data, identifying gaps, and developing recommendations related to the prevention of syphilis in females and congenital syphilis.

Other potential projects include:

• Secondary analyses of national data sets to assess prevalence and risk factors for STIs among pregnant and postpartum people and females of reproductive age;

• Analyses of national databases on patterns of hospitalizations for various conditions or health service claims for females of reproductive age and pregnant and postpartum people

• Surveillance, research, and programmatic activities related to the effects of emerging and reemerging infections during pregnancy (e.g., COVID-19, Zika, CMV, malaria)

QUALIFICATIONS

• Applicants must have a M.D. or D. O. degree, must have completed an obstetrics and gynecology residency within the last five years, and must be Board-eligible or Board-certified through ABOG at the time of employment.

• Preference will be shown to applicants with experience in clinical, epidemiologic, behavioral, or health services research, scientific writing, and/or public health.
