The 2017 FETP International Nights will be held during the 66th Annual EIS Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This event, co-sponsored by TEPHINET and the CDC, gives FETP trainees from around the world the chance to present their work to a global audience of public health practitioners. This year, the EIS Conference will be held from April 24-27, 2017. International Nights will be held on Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
International Night is hosted by the CDC Division of Global Health Protection and TEPHINET. The event provides a forum where Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents and graduates can not only give scientific presentations, but also increase their knowledge about surveillance, outbreak investigation, and recommendations that will strengthen public health systems and improve health outcomes in their respective countries. International Night also provides an opportunity for FETP residents and EIS officers to exchange ideas and expand the global network of epidemiologists who can be called upon in times of emergency.
This conference brings together students and graduates from Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETP) of members of the network countries in the world and during this venue, research works of different natures are presented and discussed, such as outbreaks, analysis or evaluation systems surveillance or other relevant topics for public health of countries. You will be able to view and participate in most of the sessions live and after the fact via the recordings. Register now!
This is a meeting of the TEPHINET Program Directors to run all day on September 6th.

By bringing FETP residents and EIS officers together to share new knowledge, International Night creates a channel for them to present and defend their research before a panel of judges, subject matter experts, scientists, academicians, and senior level officials in the global scientific arena.

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).
