Banner Epiet Euphem

The ECDC Fellowship Training Programme has two paths: EPIET and EUPHEM. For each path, there are two tracks: EU-track and MS-track. Both tracks follow an identical curriculum, but have a different application process. Before applying, please read about the ECDC fellowship programme.


The training is aimed at professionals with a minimum of:

  • post-secondary education (at the level of Graduate diploma or Masters’ diploma) in medicine, epidemiology, biology, microbiology, veterinary medicine, pharmacology, biomedicine, public health or other health sciences, and 
  • at least three years of relevant professional experience; or
  • PhD degree or equivalent in a field relevant to the fellowship.

For applicants with a background in laboratory sciences, previous experience in public health and epidemiology is an advantage. For more information consult the Fellowship Programme Manual.
