The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has selected 11 infectious diseases (ID) programs for the first Joint ID/CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellowship.

With funding from the CDC, IDSA launched this joint pilot program for ID physicians who are interested in the CDC’s EIS. The four-year pilot program streamlines a career path for applicants interested in both ID and applied epidemiology training and starts with two-years of ID fellowship followed immediately by two-years of EIS training. The innovative training allows ID fellows to get an early start on research and collaboration with their EIS assignment.

At the UNC, this program will be led by Department of Medicine faculty including Michelle Floris-Moore, MD, associate professor of medicine and director of the UNC Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program, and Joe Eron, MD, the Herman and Louise Smith Distinguished Professor of Medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases.
