Notice to Readers: Epidemic Intelligence Service Application Deadline --- September 15, 2007
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 80 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 have leadership positions at CDC and other public health agencies. The EIS experience also is useful for health professionals who would like to gain a population-based perspective on public health practice.

- Physicians with >1 year of clinical training
- Persons with a doctoral degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, the social or behavioral sciences, natural sciences, or the nutrition sciences
