Public Health Responders
When disease outbreaks or other threats emerge, EIS officers are on the scene. They support over 100 public health investigations each year in the U.S. and worldwide. Physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and other health professionals serve our country while learning to apply epidemiology to solve public health problems through a 2-year, on-the-job training and service fellowship. After a month-long orientation, new EIS officers begin assignments as ready responders in infectious and noninfectious diseases, global health, injury prevention, environmental health, and occupational health.
