How Do We Apply?

The 2023 host site application cycle opens February 1–28.

PHAP accepts host site applications through the Enterprise Fellowship Management System (eFMS) during the application period only. Please submit an eFMS Help Desk ticket for assistance with technical issues or to make changes to your application outside of the application period.

To request access to your 2020, 2021, or 2022 host site application, please contact PHAP@cdc.gov.

Once a host site has been selected, PHAP provides a copy of the Host Site Agreement to Detail by email. A signed copy of this document must be returned to PHAP prior to the associate’s start date.
