It offers on-the-job training, unique field assignments and mentoring from CDC employees. Applicants must have graduated college within the past two years or plan to graduate by July 1 of the application year, have official transcripts showing a 3.0 GPA on an eligible degree. Applicants must also be willing to commit to full-time work for two years, relocate anywhere in the US (including US territories) at their own expense, and work in a state, tribal, local, or territorial public health department, nongovernmental organization, or CDC quarantine station.
PHAP is a training program for early-career public health professionals who have a recent college degree and an interest in public service and public health.
