CDC Seeks PHAP Applications

The Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is accepting applications January 2-18, 2018 to host a public health associate to start in October 2018. PHAP is a two-year training program with the mission to train and provide experiential learning to early-career public health professionals. State, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments; non-governmental organizations, and CDC quarantine stations are encouraged to apply as a host site. CDC pays the associate's salary and benefits.


The CDC-sponsored training program is for individuals with a minimum of a bachelor's degree with little or no public health work experience but who are interested in a career in public health. PHAP enables early-career public health professionals to gain hands-on, real-life experience in the day-to-day operations of public health programs. Associates will hold positions that help build host site capacity to provide public health services.
