The Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) is a competitive, two-year, paid Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) fellowship. 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.
Applicants should have a keen interest in frontline service careers in public health and in developing strong public health programmatic and operations skills.
