International Night is one of the highlights of the annual Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference. It provides a unique forum where FETP residents can formally present how their work helps prevent, detect, and respond to communicable and non-communicable diseases and other health threats. It also gives residents an opportunity to defend their research methodology before a scientific council of peers, and compete to receive the highest FETP honor – The William H. Foege Award for Outstanding Scientific Presentation. International Night creates an environment where FETP residents and EIS officers can meet face-to-face, learn from each other and strengthen a global network that can be called upon to address global health challenges. Since 1980, through the FETP platform, CDC has worked with ministries of health and other partners to strengthen public health capacity by training over 2,800 “disease detectives” from 70 countries. 80% of FETP graduates continue to work in their home countries. With the continued threat and burden of infectious diseases, FETPs also play a significant role in assisting countries in meeting their core capacity requirements for surveillance and response under the International Health Regulations (IHR, 2005).
Presented by Dr. Seesai Yeesoonsang, 2nd year resident of the Thailand FETP.
Presented by Dr. Haidar A. Hantosh, field epidemiologist Thiqar health directorate and 2012 graduate of Iraq Field Epidemiology Training Program.

International Night is presented through the Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Center for Global Health, Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD). This year, 229 abstracts, and 100 photos illustrating the scientific work of FETP residents and graduates were submitted for consideration. We are very pleased about the quality of the submissions and we appreciate the support and encouragement given to the participants by their FETP resident advisors and other mentors. Many of the photos that were submitted last year are now displayed in CDC’s headquarters, posted on CDC’s website and used to help educate the general public about the important work we are doing to save lives
Most people come to work to do a good job. However there are frequently obstacles that can overwhelm even the best worker. It's tempting to jump to a solution, or to give up and conclude 'it will always be this way.' This session will introduce you to SMDP's most popular tool, and you will learn how to: -Use a methodical approach to analyze a performance problem -Create a cause/effect diagram to determine the reasons for a problem -Prioritize reasons before designing a solution
With limited time and resources, how does a health professional set priorities that achieve program goals? As part of the launch of SMDP's new classroom module for Health Program Planning, CDC's Dr. Katherine Wilson will lead you through a simple tool that can help set priorities during the planning process. If you attend this webinar you will be able to: -Describe how the new SMDP program planning module can fit in a management curriculum -List the major steps in program planning -Appreciate the role of prioritization in public health management and planning -Use the prioritization tool to make program decisions
