IETA Applications Process

The application for our 2017-2018 IETA program will be posted June 2017.

If there are any questions about the application process, please e-mail ieta@cdc.gov 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.
