Curricular process guide for EPIET and EPIET-associated fellowships

EAPs are Field Epidemiology Training Programmes (FETP) run and governed by Member States.

It also provides references to other documents and standard operating procedures (SOPs) available through the ECDC extranet, including SOPs for the selection of fellows, international assignments, site visits and preparation of abstracts.
