The European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET)
The European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) provides training and practical experience in intervention epidemiology at the national centres for surveillance and control of communicable diseases in the European Union (EU). The programme is aimed at EU medical practitioners, public-health nurses, microbiologists, veterinarians and other health professionals with previous experience in Public Health and a keen interest in epidemiology.
The primary objective of the EPIET programme is to provide state-of-the-art training in field epidemiology enabling its fellows to apply epidemiological methods to a wide range of public health problems in Europe. The main emphasis of the programme is on learning-by-doing activities. The programme is hosted at the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control in Stockholm, Sweden.
EPIET Alumni Network (EAN)
The EPIET Alumni Network (EAN) was created to help develop and maintain a network of European public health epidemiologists that have participated in the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) or other European Field Epidemiology Training Programmes (FETP).
Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET)
Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a professional network of 55 field epidemiology training programs (FETPs) around the world. TEPHINET aims to strengthen international public health capacity by training field epidemiologists through an applied apprenticeship program. Trainees of FETPs master a set of core competencies that are vital to the practice of public health, while providing a valuable public health service to their countries and regions.
