Notice to Readers: Epidemic Intelligence Service Application Deadline --- September 15, 2006

The Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) is a 2-year, postgraduate program of service and on-the-job training for health professionals interested in the practice of epidemiology. Each year, EIS provides approximately 90 persons from around the world opportunities to gain hands-on experience in epidemiology at CDC or state or local health departments. EIS officers, often called CDC's "disease detectives," have gone on to occupy leadership positions at CDC and other public health agencies. However, the experience also is useful for health professionals who are seeking to gain a population health perspective.

Persons with a strong interest in applied epidemiology who meet at least one of the following qualifications may apply to EIS:

  • Physicians with >1 year of clinical training.
  • Persons with a PhD, DrPH, or other doctoral degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, the social or behavioral sciences, natural sciences, or the nutrition sciences.
  • Dentists, physician assistants, and nurses with an MPH or equivalent degree.
  • Veterinarians with an MPH or equivalent degree or relevant public health experience.

Applications are now being accepted for the July 2007--June 2009 EIS program. Deadline for submitting application materials is September 15, 2006. Application information and EIS program details are available at http://www.cdc.gov/eis; by telephone, 404-498-6110; or via e-mail, eisepo@cdc.gov.
