Online Summer Course

The CDC Museum Public Health Academy Online Summer Course is a web-based course with both synchronous and asynchronous components. The course reflects the museum’s mission of educating the public about CDC’s work. Admission is open to all students to who will be high-school juniors or seniors during the 2021-2022 school year.

Topics vary course to course, but may include: public health interventions, global health, infectious disease, chronic disease, injury prevention, data analysis, surveys, school wellness programs, violence prevention, birth defects, mental health, environmental health, emergency preparedness, outbreaks, scientific communication, laboratory technology, disease surveillance, epidemiology, and public health law. The course is a fast-paced academic program. Participants are expected to immerse themselves in all course materials and complete assignments by given​ deadlines in the week.

AUDIENCE: All students to who will be high-school juniors or seniors during the 2021-2022 school year.

As the CDC Museum remains closed due to COVID-19 precautions, we are not able to predict yet if in-person programming will be available the summer of 2021. If the museum is not reopened for in-person programming, the CDC Museum will offer only online courses. A final decision on in-person programming will be made May 3, 2021; all applicants will be notified of the decision by email.
