Led by Michelle Floris-Moore, MD, and Joe Eron, MD, this effort at UNC is one 11 infectious diseases 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 diseases programs for the first Joint ID/CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellowship.
With funding from CDC, IDSA launched this joint pilot program for ID physicians who are interested in CDC’s EIS. The four-year pilot program streamlines a career path for applicants interested in both ID and applied epidemiology training and starts with two-years of ID fellowship followed immediately by two-years of EIS training. The innovative training allows ID fellows to get an early start on research and collaboration with their EIS assignment.
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 Diseases Fellowship Training Program, and Joe Eron, MD, the Herman and Louise Smith Distinguished Professor of Medicine and ID division chief.
