Description:EIS officers provide service through on-the-job experience in their assignments. They are assigned to work in
• CDC headquarters in Atlanta or other locations across the United States
• State, local, or territorial health departments
• Partner organizations or agencies
EIS officers may be sent to another location on a temporary assignment. Although international work may be part of an EIS assignment, no EIS officers are based outside the United States.
Each year, approximately 75% of the new EIS class is assigned to CDC headquarters locations in Atlanta or outside Atlanta. CDC also has offices in Anchorage, Alaska; Cincinnati, Ohio; Fort Collins, Colorado; Hyattsville, Maryland; Morgantown, West Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Spokane, Washington; and Washington, DC.
The remainder of the class is assigned to public health departments in the United States and its territories, or to other federal agencies or partner organizations. Regardless of where they are assigned, all EIS officers participate in competency-based education and experiential on-the-job training.
