Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) Fellowship Program
The Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) Laboratory Fellowship Program, sponsored by APHL and CDC, trains and prepares scientists for careers in public health laboratories and supports public health initiatives related to infectious disease research.
The EID Advanced Laboratory Training Fellowship is a one-year program designed for bachelor’s or master’s level scientists, with emphasis on the practical application of technologies, methodologies and practices related to emerging infectious diseases. The EID Laboratory Research Fellowship is a two-year program designed for doctoral level (PhD, MD or DVM) scientists to conduct high-priority research in infectious diseases.
The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Laboratories Administration, has participated in the APHL/CDC EID Fellowship Program since 2009. The MD DHMH LABS hosted one pre-doctoral and one international fellow in 2009-2010. The MD DHMH LABS provides training opportunity for those interested in diagnostic, investigative, and leadership careers in public health laboratories.
