Public Health Education for Physicians (PHEP) provides education to physicians-in-training about public health. The primary target groups are primary care residents from the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS); other levels of physician training from DHS as well as other institutions, however, will be considered.
PHEP uses two approaches to provide public health education: didactic and experiential. For the didactic, PHEP has a list of public health topics that are available. Please contact PHEP to arrange any of these talks or others. The experiential approach is through public health rotations.
Public Health rotations are offered on an individual basis by contacting PHEP. The standard duration for a public health rotation is one month. The experience can be individualized to fit the physician-in-training’s needs. Please contact PHEP at least 2 months prior to the desired start of a rotation so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
For further information about PHEP trainings, please contact the PHEP/Medical Affairs office at firstname.lastname@example.org and include PHEP in subject line.
