DISEASE DETECTIVES 24/7

Disease detectives are CDC’s first responders to public health emergencies. They are on the scene to solve mysterious outbreaks, detect new microbes, and protect global health.

APPLY NOW

EIS is a 2-year fellowship that provides training in applied epidemiology. Applications for the 2016 class will be accepted through August 17, 2015.

SOLVING OUTBREAKS

The EIS experience involves investigating disease outbreaks and responding to natural disasters and other emergencies that endanger health and safety.

EIS IN THE NEWS

When Ebola emerged in West Africa, EIS officers responded. As the epidemic grew, CDC organized the largest international response to a public health problem in its history.

Meet the Public Health Heroes

Erik
Erik, a DO, knew to expect bucket shows, no Internet, and generator-based power. But Ebola’s unrelenting grip on everyday life took him by surprise.
Ruth N.
Ruth, an MD, supported Ebola surveillance, data management, and contact tracing. She relied on her familiarity with African customs while interacting with locals in Sierra Leone.
Rebecca
Rebecca has a PhD in human nutrition. Her Ebola response task was to improve health messaging at the community level, where rumor and misinformation fueled the virus' spread.
Neil
Neil, an MD, followed ambulances that picked up suspected Ebola cases and made recommendations to improve infection control lapses — helping local health officials in Liberia monitor contacts.
