EIS officers are selected from among highly qualified applicants drawn to public health service and interested in practicing applied epidemiology. EIS officers may be assigned to work in the areas of infectious diseases, chronic diseases, injury prevention, environmental health, or occupational health, either at CDC, or at another federal agency, state, or local health department. We are particularly interested in applicants whose coursework and experience indicate flexibility to a variety of topical areas and geographic placements in the U.S. and who have a record of high academic achievement, teamwork, innovation, and leadership. Successful applicants must demonstrate how EIS is a logical career path and in what ways they will benefit from the applied training through service that defines the EIS program.
