Fellowships

California Department of Public Health

Mission: To prepare epidemiologists for public health leadership positions in California.

Goals:

  • To provide experience in epidemiology and public health practice during placements with governmental health agencies.
  • To produce well-trained epidemiologists for employment in California public health agencies.
  • To assist local health departments in emergency outbreak and other field of epidemiology investigations, if the opportunity arises.

California Epidemiologic Investigation Service (Cal-EIS) is a one- or two-year program for promising but green epidemiologists to gain hands-on experience working with an epidemiologist preceptor in either local or state health departments in California.

Established in 1989 in response to the California Conference of Local Health Officers' need to employ qualified epidemiologists in California's health departments, Cal-EIS provides one year of training in applied epidemiology for epidemiologists who have recently graduated from a Master's degree program. Occasionally, there is the opportunity to extend the Fellowship for a second year.

Cal-EIS takes pride in public health workforce training. It is a unique program; very few states have a training program designed to train Master's-level epidemiologists. 

Visit the California Department of Public Health website for more information and application instructions.
