    EIS is a 2-year postgraduate program in applied epidemiology for health professionals interested in public health; it provides competency-based training through classroom instruction, e-learning, and on-the-job experience. The program is modeled on a traditional medical residency program, where much of the education takes place through hands-on assignments and mentoring. During the 2-year program, EIS officers are employees of CDC and receive a salary and benefits. They provide service to public health while training as an epidemiologist.
