In 2008 ECDC has launched a new programme to train public health microbiologists. The programme, known as EUPHEM (European Public Health Microbiology Training Programme), runs parallel to the EPIET programme, with a distinct curriculum.
The EUPHEM programme aims at developing a European network of public health microbiologists to strengthen communicable disease surveillance and control through an integrated laboratory-field epidemiology network for outbreak detection, investigation and response.
EUPEHM is a 2-year competency based ‘learning by doing’ fellowship aimed to train specialists to apply microbiology in the context of public health. The training currently takes place at Training Sites in four EU Member States.
At present ECDC has two grants available for EUPHEM. Applicants are invited to apply for a fellow position for EUPHEM Cohort 3.
Deadline for applications is 25 April 2010, at 24.00 CET.
