Call for expression of interest for the cohort 2012 of EPIET Member state track
The Call for expression of interest for the cohort 2012 of EPIET Member state track (EPIET MS-Track) is now open and has been sent to the coordinating competent body: EU Member states with acknowledged EPIET training site can express their interest in having a fellow trained, deadline is 26 February 2012. Visits will be organised to those countries, which are interested in training an EPIET-MS Fellow, but don’t have an EPIET Training site yet, to appraise their potential availability as training sites.
Since 2011 the MS track of EPIET provides training in EU/EEA country of origin. It addresses the need of strengthening the field epidemiology capacity in the Member States that have not yet benefitted from the EPIET Programme. In 2011 seven fellows participated in the MS-Track programme, the EPIET Training Site Forum (ETSF) requesting that more fellowships are made available. ECDC's answer to this request is an increase in the number of MS-Track seats offered: for the 2012 cohort ECDC will be co-funding 12 MS-Track fellowships.
Deadline: 26 February 2012
