International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) Program

IETA is now officially recruiting for its 2016 – 2017 Cohort 18. See details regarding our upcoming information sessions below. Please submit your application by Friday, July 1, 2016.

Are you looking for an outstanding opportunity to gain experience in international public health work? Then, the International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) training program may be for you!

The International Experience and Technical Assistance (IETA) program is a developmental training program for Federal public health employees offered by the Center for Global Health (CGH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Specifically, IETA is a professional development/technical assistance program that takes place over a 12-month period. It consists of attendance at three (3) workshops in Atlanta, Georgia (3-4 days each) and a supervised short-term (12-week minimum) overseas assignment with an international public health program. All cohort participants serve overseas between January and August in one of the 50-plus countries where CDC has an overseas presence.

To find out more about the program, please review the following information:

If there are any questions about the program, you are welcome to send an e-mail to or contact the Program Manager at (404) 718-8874.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are being held at three CDC campuses this month.  In these sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet the Program Manager, learn about the IETA program, hear from a graduate of the program, and – most importantly – ask questions.
