The Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) is a competitive, two-year training program in which successful applicants have demonstrated academic achievement and an interest in public health. Successful applicants have also made significant contributions to their communities in public health and in other areas through volunteer or paid work experience.
Our associates are recent graduates from accredited public and private universities throughout the United States. Prior to joining PHAP, associates have often held positions in research, clinical, nonprofit, and international settings.
Examples of positions held by associates prior to their participation in PHAP include
- Summer research fellow, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, University of California Davis Center for Health and the Environment
- HIV team activities leader, Boston Healthcare for the Homeless
- Research assistant, Johns Hopkins University
- President, Future Public Health Professionals
- Pharmacy technician, Rite Aid
- Latino resource coordinator, Health Leads/Baltimore Health Care Access
- Volunteer translator, Global Medical Brigades
Immediately following completion of the Public Health Associate Program (PHAP), the majority of associates (81%) are continuing their career or education in public health, population health, or health care.
