A new cohort of fellows started the European Programme for Public Health Microbiology Training (EUPHEM) fellowships. One of the key objectives of the EUPHEM fellowships is to create a strong EU wide network of public health microbiologists, where fellows, supervisors, facilitators and experts from other networks share the purpose of effective disease prevention and control in Europe.
ECDC is releasing a new website dedicated to EUPHEM. The new web pages comprise information on the programme, with specific focus on the EUPHEM fellowship and conditions to apply. It also shows related training events and news. All updated information about EUPHEM can now be found here.
The European Programme for Public Health Microbiology Training (EUPHEM) is a training programme in public health microbiology, managed by ECDC. The programme provides training and practical experience at European laboratories with public health reference functions to EU microbiologists with a medical, veterinary or environmental microbiology background and previous experience in public health. The applicants for the EUPHEM fellowships should be interested in applying microbiological principles and methods to the prevention and control of diseases in the human population.
