The Epidemiology Elective Program (EEP) introduces medical and veterinary students to applied epidemiology, public health, and global health through hands-on experience and mentorship by CDC subject matter experts. This program offers 6- or 8-week rotations largely based at CDC in Atlanta, Georgia. Fellows are currently enrolled in a U.S. accredited medical or veterinary school and have completed 2 years of coursework. Every effort is made to place students in an assignment that provides leadership experience that aligns with their career goals and preferred public health topic area. Most schools award course credit for participation in EEP.
