Epidemic Intelligence Service 2018 annual update
  • Description:
    This 2018 Annual Update provides an overview of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program, a snapshot of the incoming class, host site assignments of the current classes, and main accomplishments of the most recent graduates. The incoming EIS Class of 2018 brings a balance of quantitative and clinical skills (page 5) that will allow them to thrive during the fellowship as they provide critical public health services. Current officers in the EIS Classes of 2016 and 2017 (page 6) respond to disease outbreaks and other public health threats while simultaneously improving their competencies and skills to make rapid, practical, and evidence-based decisions that protect our communities in the U.S. and around the world. For the first time, this report highlights the work of our most recent graduates from the EIS Class of 2015. These officers made impressive contributions through their response to Zika virus, healthcare-associated infections, occupational and environmental exposures, and many other pressing public health problems, as well as through their evaluations of surveillance systems and analyses of public health data. The extensive scope of their investigations is shown in this update (pages 7-10). These graduates also made substantial contributions to public health literature, as evidenced by the publication listing based on their EIS work to-date (https://www.cdc.gov/eis/media-publications/publications.html). The majority of graduates from the EIS Class of 2015 continued their careers in public health, filling important public health positions at the federal, state and local levels (pages 11). We look forward to showcasing the accomplishments of the EIS Class of 2016 in next year’s EIS Annual Update.
