U.S. Public Health Service Student Extern Program

The U.S. Public Health Service offers a Commissioned Corps Officer Student Training and Extern Program (COSTEP) for junior or senior full-time students to serve on the frontlines of public health while completing a baccalaureate or master’s degree. Juniors may be interested in the summer program to gain a paid clinical experience after they complete their junior year of nursing education. Seniors can receive an early commissioning as an officer with full benefits and salary while studying in the senior year. If you are interested in a public health career, we encourage you to apply. A Senior COSTEP application must be postmarked by December 31 of the year before you begin your final year of school. For more details about the USPHS Student Programs, see or contact 1-800-279-1605.
