Infectious Disease Epidemiology

The Infectious Disease Epidemiology Training Program was established in 2001 with a focus on developing investigators with expertise in the epidemiology of infectious diseases. The goal of the program is to prepare future leaders in the effort to rapidly identify, prevent, and manage emerging and reemerging infections within a dramatically changing global environment.

Funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), trainees selected for this program are expected to conduct clinical or laboratory-based research with one of the participating faculty mentors. In addition, they are required to obtain a master’s or doctoral degree with a focus in Infectious Disease Epidemiology through the Mailman School of Public Health or the Division of Infectious Disease at the Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC).

Candidates will be subject to the requirements of NIH Institutional Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards and to the requirements of the Mailman School of Public Health and CUMC Admissions Offices
