IETA Applications Now Being Accepted

The application cycle for this year has officially opened and the IETA program is currently accepting applications for its 2016 – 2017 Cohort 18. You can download the Application Form by clicking on this link: "CDC 0.1418".

Please fill out application information electronically, including your signature as well as your first- and second-level supervisors’ signatures. If you cannot sign the document electronically, you may print it and then sign.

A complete application will include the following documents:

  • Complete application form with first-level and second-level supervisor signatures
  • Brief responses (2 pages maximum) to 6 questions provided in the application
  • Current résumé
  • Most recent full-year performance appraisal rating or COER rating (cover sheet only with rating official's signature)

Scan all items together to create one PDF document and send this document to ieta@cdc.gov by Friday, July 1, 2016. Incomplete application packages will not be reviewed.

Timeline: All complete applications will be reviewed and rated, then the top qualified applicants will be invited to interview by telephone in July. Applicants accepted for IETA Cohort 18 will be notified in mid-August. The program’s first workshop will be held in October.

If there are any questions about the application process, please e-mail ieta@cdc.gov or contact the Program Manager at (404) 718-8874.

Medical clearance information: Please note that after being accepted into the program, you must be issued a Department of State Medical Clearance before departing overseas for assignment. The purpose of a medical clearance is to identify specific health needs and medical conditions that may require specialty management, follow-up, or monitoring. This is meant to reduce the need for medical travel during the 12-week assignment due to lack of local health resources.

Failure to receive a medical clearance is very rare, but post-specific medical clearances (Class II) are not uncommon. A Class II clearance will determine the location of a participant’s assignment. This topic will be discussed in detail during IETA’s first workshop and the medical clearance will be completed after this training session.
