IETA Application Process

The application cycle for this year has officially opened and the IETA program is currently accepting applications for its 2015 Cohort 17. You can download the Application Form by clicking on this link: “CDC 0.14.18”.

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

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 by Friday, October 10, 2014. Incomplete application packages will not be reviewed.

All complete applications will be reviewed and rated, and the top qualified applicants will be invited to interview by telephone in November. Applicants accepted for IETA Cohort 17 will be notified in early December and the program’s first workshop will be held in January 2015.

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.
