IETA Application Process

The IETA application deadline has passed and IETA is no longer accepting applications for its 2014 Cohort 16.

All complete applications are currently being reviewed and rated, and the top qualified applicants will be invited to interview by telephone in early December. Applicants accepted for IETA Cohort 16 will be notified before the Christmas holiday. The program’s first workshop is tentatively scheduled for February 2014. 

Application information: IETA applications will be posted again in September 2014. If there are any questions about the application process, please e-mail or contact the Program Coordinator 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.
