The European Programme for Public Health Microbiology Training (EUPHEM) provides training and practical experience in public health microbiology at laboratories with public health reference functions in the European Union (EU). The programme is aimed at EU microbiologists with a medical, veterinary or environmental microbiology background with previous experience in public pealth and a keen interest in applying microbiological principles and methods to the prevention and control of diseases in the human population.

The primary objective of the EUPHEM programme is to provide state-of-the-art training in public health microbiology enabling its fellows to apply microbiological and 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.
