Do you know a young adult that might be interested in a career in the exciting field of public health? If you do, they may be in luck. The Public Health Associate Program administered by CDC is designed to identify future public health leaders with undergraduate degrees and a passion for public health. Throughout the 2 year program- associates get a hands-on frontline experience that will be the foundation of a solid public health career. It’s a two-year, paid on-the-job training program for entry-level, frontline public health practitioners who are employed by CDC but work directly in state, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments.
You can check out the eligibility requirements, and the application on the CDC’s website. The application window opens this week- and candidates will have about 4 weeks to complete and submit the application and get supporting documents (transcripts, letters of recommendation).
