Training Fellowships for Intervention Epidemiology in Europe


The ECDC plans to recruit for the 14th cohort of fellows in the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET), starting in September 2008. The aim of the EPIET training is to enable the fellow to assume service responsibilities in communicable disease epidemiology. The in-service training will focus on outbreak investigations, disease surveillance, applied research, and communications with decision makers, the media, the public and the scientific community. Fellows will attend a three-week intensive introductory course and then be located in a host institute in one of the participating training sites in EU Member States and Norway.
