The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is recruiting for the 14th cohort of fellows in the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET), which will start in September 2008. The aim of EPIET is to enable fellows to assume service responsibilities in communicable disease epidemiology. The in-service training focuses 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, based in European Union Member States and Norway.
