Epidemic Intelligence Service Announcement

02 May 2017 8:50 AM | SAVIR Executive Office (Administrator)

Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Applications for the Class of 2018 just opened today and will be open until June 30th, 2017. EIS is CDC’s pre-eminent 2-year training program for post-doctoral students and clinicians in applied epidemiology (please see link for specific eligibility criteria). Although this program may be best known for work in infectious disease, it serves all Centers at CDC, including CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center). Fellows spend some of their time in didactic training, but spend most of their time under the supervision and mentorship of CDC scientists. Within the Injury Center, we offer a wide variety of opportunities in both Violence and Unintentional Injury Prevention. Please note that admission is to the EIS program as a whole and not to a specific Center. Fellows who are admitted go through a matching process. Incoming fellows have the opportunity to meet with various scientists and then identify the positions that resonate most with them. There are more positions than EIS officers, so there is a high likelihood of obtaining a top choice. 

Please distribute this announcement to your students and related networks, as appropriate. If students or junior faculty are interested and want more specific information about opportunities future EIS positions in the Injury Center and how the Injury Center interacts with EIS, they can contact Dr. Arlene Greenspan at agreenspan@cdc.gov. For information about applying to EIS, eligibility criteria, and specific information about EIS, please go to https://www.cdc.gov/eis/application.html.
