On behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we invite you to partner with us as we launch the 2019 Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) host site recruitment initiative. The application period is February 4–18.

About PHAP

PHAP is a two-year, on-the-job, training program for early-career public health professionals. Associates are employed by CDC and work in state, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments; nongovernmental organizations; public health institutes and associations; academic institutions; and CDC quarantine stations. Currently, PHAP has more than 200 associates fulfilling hands-on workforce needs at host sites across 38 states, the District of Columbia, and 2 US territories.

Public health organizations have hosted associates working in a variety of public health areas, such as prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, HIV, and other communicable diseases; chronic disease prevention; environmental health; public health preparedness; immunization; injury and violence prevention; maternal and child health promotion; accreditation; and access to healthcare.

Apply To Be a Host Site

PHAP is seeking exceptional sites to host an associate from October 2019 to October 2021. There are numerous benefits to serving as a PHAP host site, including—


  • Gaining CDC-funded field assignees who are energetic, intelligent, flexible, career-minded individuals with unlimited potential  
  • Forming a unique partnership with CDC to develop the nation's next generation of public health professionals
  • Filling workforce gaps caused by budget cuts and staffing shortages

Prospective host sites can learn more about PHAP and the components of a quality application and associate training experience on CDC’s PHAP website, in the
Become a Host Site section. There you can find helpful program and application information, including webinar recordings, information about eligibility, answers to frequently asked questions, and testimonials from previous host sites. Those with further questions about PHAP or the application process can email or call 404-498-0030.
