Internship turns student into incidental military officer, ship inspector and explorer
Adam Zandman-Zeman is a senior at Colorado State University, graduating in May 2007, with a double major in environmental health and microbiology. He is particularly interested in epidemiology and is currently applying to a one-year research fellowship with the CDC before applying to medical school where he hopes to complete a MD/MPH program (medical doctor and master's in public health).
Professional experience in office and in the field
Adam's internship last summer was with the U.S. Public Health Service Junior Commissioned Officer Student Training and Extern Program, or JRCOSTEP. The program allows students to gain professional experience with the PHS early in their education. JRCOSTEP participants serve in assignments throughout the country during their official school breaks.
Participants apply to work in one of the eight operating divisions that comprise the Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS, including such agencies as the Food and Drug Administration, Indian Health Service, National Institutes of Health, and CDC, as well as other non-HHS federal agencies.
