Applying to EIS

New Fellowship Opportunity for Infectious Disease Physicians: Coming in Spring 2023
If you are an infectious disease (ID) physician interested in EIS, please consider applying to the four-year Joint ID/EIS Fellowship program. The application period for the first cohort will open in spring 2023. Applicants must apply to both an ID fellowship and the EIS fellowship during the same application period. Selected fellows begin the four-year program with an ID fellowship in July 2024 and continue to the EIS fellowship in July 2026. Learn more about this opportunity, made possible by a partnership with the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

Follow these steps to apply to EIS. You must be willing to commit to this 2-year, full-time fellowship (beginning in July) and relocate to your assignment. Please download the flyer on the right side of the page and share it with your network!
