Applications for CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program are currently being accepted through August 17, 2015. CDC’s EIS program is a 2-year fellowship that provides training in applied epidemiology. The program is more than just a training, though. It can open the door to an exciting and rewarding career in public health. EIS officers serve as CDC’s “disease detectives,” the first responders to public health emergencies. EIS officers work in all areas of public health including injury and violence prevention. Officers work to save lives and protect people by solving mysterious outbreaks, detecting new microbes and ensuring global health when natural disasters and other emergencies occur.
For more information or if you are interested in applying, visit www.cdc.gov/eis. Or, if you would like to learn more about the injury and violence prevention work that EIS officers do, contact Arlene Greenspan (firstname.lastname@example.org) atCDC’s Injury Center.
