Apply Today to Host a PHAP Associate

The host site application period for the Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) closes today, January 19, 2017, at 11:59 pm (EST).

PHAP is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) two-year, training program for early-career public health professionals that provides opportunities for recent graduates (with a bachelor’s or master’s degree) to gain broad experience in the day-to-day operations of public health programs. State, tribal, local, and US territorial public health agencies; community-based organizations; public health institutes and associations; academic institutions; and CDC quarantine stations are encouraged to apply to host an associate.


There are numerous benefits to serving as a PHAP host site, including—

  • Gaining CDC-funded field assignees who bring valuable skills and who are well-rounded, energetic, flexible, career-minded individuals with unlimited potential
  • Forming a unique partnership with CDC to develop the nation’s next generation of public health professionals
  • Being able to fill workforce gaps caused by budget cuts and staffing shortages
