Registration is Now Open for the 2021 FETP International Nights!

We are excited to announce the opening of registration for the 2021 FETP International Nights. Co-hosted since 2000 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and TEPHINET, this annual event has become a highly anticipated forum of the global Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) community. This year is particularly meaningful as we celebrate the event's 20th anniversary.

This year, FETP International Nights, traditionally held during the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference in Atlanta, will be a standalone virtual event that is free and open to the public.

FETP International Nights are an opportunity to share work done by FETPs around the world and to recognize the impact these programs make every day in public health.
