Health Fields of Study


The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a FREE summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. These students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.

Program

The University of Iowa Health Sciences Colleges is pleased to offer an enriching six week experience with SHPEP. The Health Sciences Colleges include the Carver College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Pharmacy, and College of Public Health. They strongly believe in the value of exposing students from underrepresented backgrounds to the possibility of pursuing health fields and supporting their goals in accomplishing that dream to help improve the health of society at large.

This program enables new graduates with an interest in public health to work in a variety of public health settings. More information below and at http://www.cdc.gov/phap./

The mission of the CDC’s Public Health Associate Program (PHAP) is to train and provide experiential learning to early career professionals who contribute to the public health workforce. Managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, PHAP enables entry-level public health professionals to gain hands-on, real-life experience in the day-to-day operations of public health programs. The CDC works with a pool of young professionals and places them with a health department or Tribal organization that will create a mutually beneficially learning and work environment.  PHAPs are assigned to a host site for a full two years.

There were nine applications from Tribes or Tribal organizations in the last round to host a PHAP – and all nine were successfully matched with a CDC PHAP.  NIHB and the CDC would like to see an increase in both the number of Tribes/Tribal organizations that are hosting PHAPs, and the number of American Indian and Alaska Native young professionals that serve as PHAPs.  The CDC is now accepting applications for both.

Host site applications are open January 4-22, 2016

AND

PHAP candidate applications are open from January 4-8, 2016 (note that this is only five days)
