PFA Benefits

The PFA program is designed to provide PFAs with the skills, training, and experience to successfully transition to the next phase of their public health careers. Many PFAs have been hired by their host agencies and now serve in leadership capacities. A growing number of PFAs have continued with CDC, while others have sought advanced degrees in public health and the medical field. More than 95% of PFAs completing the program have continued their careers or education in public health.
