The Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) is a competitive, two-year, paid fellowship within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Public Health Associates are assigned to state, tribal, and local public health agencies throughout the United States working in all sectors of public health, including STD/HIV; Tuberculosis; Chronic Disease; Environmental Health; Public Health Preparedness; Immunization; Injury Prevention; and Maternal and Child Health. PHAP provides opportunities for promising future public health professionals to gain broad experience in the day-to-day operation of public health programs.
PHAP is open only to US citizens with a BA or BS degree (or who will obtain degree status before beginning the program). It is anticipated that PHAP will hire 50-65 associates in FY2012 and will receive well over 1000 applications for those positions. Candidates must submit 2 letters of recommendation with their application materials so please allow enough time to get these. Applications open February 1, 2012.
