Infectious Diseases/Epidemic Intelligence Service Joint Fellowship Program

New opportunity for expanded training in public health

Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in partnership with the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), Vanderbilt is excited to be a part of the joint Infectious Diseases/Epidemic Intelligence Service (ID/EIS) fellowship program pilot. The joint fellowship provides a structured career opportunity for ID physicians to expand their training in public health by combining our ID fellowship program with the two-year CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service.

Joint fellows at Vanderbilt will have the opportunity to collaborate with the Metro Nashville Department of Health as well as the Tennessee Department of Health. Interested fellows will need to apply to both EIS and the ID Fellowship program. Applications to EIS for the first cohort will open in March 2023 and will remain open until June 5, 2023.  Selected fellows begin the four-year program with an ID fellowship in July 2024, and continue to the EIS fellowship in July 2026.
