Centers for Disease Control: Public Health fellowship for baccalaureate candidates
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support is looking for prospective associates for the Public Health Associate Program (PHAP).
PHAP is a competitive, two-year, paid CDC fellowship for recent baccalaureate college graduates (BA/BS) who wish to begin a career in public health. A PHAP associate is assigned to a state, tribal, local or territorial public health agency and works alongside local public health professionals. After completing the program, PHAP graduates will be qualified for future jobs with federal, state, tribal, local, and territorial public health agencies, and will be uniquely prepared to pursue an advanced degree in public health.
The associate application period opens February 1, 2012; visit the PHAP website (www.cdc.gov/phap) for more information about this exciting opportunity to gain frontline public health experience and to apply.
