Field Epidemiology Training Program: Additional Resources
Created in 1997, Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a professional network of 63 field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) in 88 countries around the world. TEPHINET aims to strengthen international public health capacity by training field epidemiologists through an applied apprenticeship program. It is a resource hub for FETPs. A detailed list of regional FETP networks can be found on the FETP Partners page.
The TEPHINET Library is a place for groups to share and discuss knowledge about public health and other topics of interest to the community. The Library includes a searchable archive of training materials, case studies, abstracts, presentations and FETP standard curricula.
