IETA Applications Process
IETA Applications Now Being Accepted!
The application cycle for this year has officially opened and the IETA program is currently accepting applications for its 2017 – 2018 Cohort 19. You can download the Application Form by clicking on this link: “CDC 0.1418 [PDF – 407 KB]”.
Please fill out the application information electronically, being sure to include your signature as well as your first- and second-level supervisors’ signatures. If you cannot digitally sign the document, you may print it and then sign.
A complete application will include the following documents:
- Complete application form with all required signatures and brief responses to 6 questions identified in the application
- Current résumé
- Most recent full-year performance appraisal rating or COER rating (cover sheet only with rating official’s signature)
- SF-50 (non-CDC applicants only)
Scan all items together to create one PDF document and send this document to email@example.com by Friday, July 7, 2017. Please use “IETA Application Submission” in the subject line when submitting your application. Incomplete application packages will not be reviewed.
Timeline: There are two steps to the application review process. All complete applications will undergo a review. Then, selected applicants will be invited to interview by telephone in early August. Invitations to participate in the 2017-2018 IETA program will be sent by late August. The program’s first workshop will be held October 11-13, 2017.
If there are any questions about the application process, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Program Manager 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.
