Enhancing Your Medical Career with a Public Health Experience Webinar

This webinar is an opportunity for students, residents, and mentors to understand the value of a hands-on public health experience during one's medical career. We highlight a specific CDC training program as one pathway to pursuing a meaningful public health experience in medical education, namely the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS)—a two-year post-graduate training program of service and on-the-job learning. This webinar includes an extended Q&A session between panelists and attendees.

View valuable questions and answers  from the webinar about general public health training and specifically about EIS, to assist medical students, residents and mentors with medical career planning.
