Announcements: Public Health Prevention Service Accepting Applications for 2012 Class and Field Assignments

CDC's Public Health Prevention Service (PHPS) program is accepting applications for the 2012 class. PHPS also is accepting applications from public health organizations for placement of fellows in 2-year field assignments focusing on program management.

PHPS is a 3-year training and service fellowship that focuses on public health program management. This unique program provides experience in program planning, implementation, and evaluation through specialized hands-on training and mentorship at CDC and in state and local health organizations.

Through its 2-year field assignments, PHPS is available to support and supplement state or local health organizations in filling crucial program management needs. The 2-year field assignment provides public health organizations with fellows who can contribute high-quality work in program management, including but not limited to decision making, policy recommendations, budget preparation, workforce planning, project implementation and evaluation, partnerships, and health communication.

Applicants with a master's degree in public health or management-related fields from an accredited college or university and 1 year of paid public health experience are encouraged to apply for acceptance to the PHPS class, which begins in October 2012. Applications must be submitted online by February 1, 2012, and supporting documents must be postmarked by that same day. Additional information regarding the program's eligibility criteria and application process is available at, by telephone at 404-498-6120, or by e-mail at

All salaries, benefits, and PHPS-related travel expenses for the 2-year field assignments are covered by CDC. Health organizations are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to provide a practical learning experience for PHPS fellows and to address public health priorities of their organizations.
