2013 PHPS fellowship information
Note to PHPS applicants: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) appreciates your interest in public health and in applying for the Public Health Prevention Service (PHPS) program. Circumstances have changed such that CDC will not be bringing on a new (i.e., 2013) PHPS class until a more thorough assessment of the program can be completed. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause applicants and urge applicants to continue to pursue opportunities in public health and at CDC.
CDC will spend this year assessing strengths and needs of the program to build an even stronger foundation for the 2014 class. This decision allows time for CDC leadership and staff to better understand the workforce needs of the public health community and provide a more effective program for both fellows and public health agencies.
CDC expects to recruit a 2014 fellowship class, and we hope candidates will apply for the fellowship program when the recruitment opens in 2014. Please visit www.cdc.gov/phps periodically for updates on recruitment dates.
This decision affects only those individuals who applied to be PHPS fellows for the 2013 class. All current fellowships and field assignments will continue at this time.
