Funded by the CDC, the Joint ID/EIS Fellowship pilot program seeks to develop future public health leaders through an exciting new career opportunity. The Joint ID/EIS Fellowship program combines the ID Fellowship and CDC EIS program, offering a structured opportunity for ID physicians to expand their training in public health and global health.
The Joint ID/EIS Fellowship program begins with a two-year ID Fellowship then continues with the two-year EIS program. During the EIS program, Joint Fellows will directly address public health threats, working either in field locations at state and local public health departments or at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta.
There are several benefits to the Joint ID/EIS Fellowship program for applicants:
Approximately six to eight ID training programs will participate in the pilot of the Joint ID/EIS Fellowship program. Participating ID fellowship programs will be selected through an application process in the first quarter of 2022.
Applications for the first cohort of fellows are expected to open in early spring 2023 for placement in two-year ID Programs in July 2024. This first cohort will then join the EIS class of 2026.
