UNC Selected for Joint ID/CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellowship Program
Led by Michelle Floris-Moore, MD, and Joe Eron, MD, this effort at UNC is one of 11 infectious disease divisions across the country selected for this pilot program launched by the Infectious Diseases Society of America with the CDC.
The Infectious Diseases Society of America, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has selected 11 infectious disease programs for the first Joint ID/CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellowship.
With CDC funding, IDSA has launched this joint pilot program for ID physicians who are interested in CDC EIS. The four-year pilot program streamlines a career path for candidates interested in both ID and applied epidemiology training and begins with two years of ID fellowship followed immediately by two years of EIS training. The innovative training allows ID Fellows to start research and collaboration with their EIS assignment early.
At the UNC School of Medicine, this program is led by Michelle Floris-Moore, MD, associate professor of medicine and director of the UNC Infectious Disease Fellowship Training Program, and Joe Eron, MD, Herman and Louise Smith Professor Emeritus of Medicine and Division Chief ID.
