About the employer
CDC’s mission is to protect the health and quality of life through the prevention and control of disease. Various internship and training opportunities offer invaluable experience for students of all academic levels and focus areas, including medicine, health care, research, and operations.
You meet people in your fellowship cohort all of whom are interesting and passionate about public health. The experience is so valuable and opens up a lot of doors at CDC and at other health agencies. Afterwards, people go on to PhD programs, CDC jobs, or local/state health departments.
