Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP)

Montage of images, including a man in a white bioprotection suit collecting blood from a camel, a group of women checking a toddler for vaccination, a woman showing the atrophied legs of a 12 year old polio victim, and a man teaching young Buddhist monks.

Our efforts to more rapidly and effectively respond to health threats currently reach over 60 countries. We train field epidemiologists around the world, giving them the necessary skills to collect, analyze and interpret data and contribute to evidence-based decisions.
