The goal of the ASM/NCID Fellowship is to support the development of new approaches, methodologies and knowledge in infectious disease prevention and control in areas within the public health mission of the CDC. The program is intended for individuals who either earned their doctorate degree or completed a primary residency within three years of their proposed start date.
Epidemiology training and research opportunities Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS)
The Epidemic Intelligence Service is a unique 2-year, post-graduate program of service and on-the-job training for health professionals interested in the practice of epidemiology. Every year CDC recruits 60-80 persons to enter the EIS and pursue on-the-job training in epidemiologic investigations, research, and public health surveillance. At present, the Mycotic Diseases Branch seeks to recruit one EIS officer each year. For more information and application materials, visit the EIS web site.
