The second class of the Public Health Prevention Service (PHPS), a new national training program for master's-level health professionals, will begin September 1998. PHPS offers 3 years of hands-on experience, training, and supervision in applying public health science and theory to building the programs that protect and improve the public's health. These prevention specialists will learn how to effectively apply surveillance, epidemiology, social and behavioral science, social marketing, health communications, and other disciplines to planning, implementing, and evaluating prevention strategies that are practical and effective at the community, state, and national levels. The training program will include two 6-month assignments at CDC in Atlanta, Georgia; Cincinnati, Ohio; Hyattsville, Maryland; or Morgantown, West Virginia, followed by a 2-year assignment in a state or local health department.

Applicants must have a strong interest in a public health career, a master's degree related to public health, and U.S. citizenship. At least 1 year of public health work experience (may include an internship or a thesis project in a community setting as part of a master's degree) is highly desirable. Applications must be submitted by January 5, 1998.
