CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS): A Unique Fellowship for Physicians Webinar

When outbreaks happen that threaten the public’s health, elite disease detectives from CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) are on the scene. Whether for recent events like Zika virus or lead poisoning, or historic public health threats like smallpox or Legionnaires’ disease, EIS officers are CDC’s boots-on-the-ground. They step up at a moment’s notice to investigate outbreaks in the U.S. and all over the world. Their detective work protects people and save lives.  This webinar, offered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), will highlight CDC’s EIS program, a unique 2-year post-doctoral fellowship in applied epidemiology. This webinar is an opportunity for MD/MPH students, residents, faculty, and practicing physicians to understand the value of a hands-on public health experience and how it complements clinical skills. Hear directly from physician EIS officers about their life-changing career experiences in responding to disease outbreaks and working on meaningful public health issues. Register Now!
