MediPIET Training Programme

The Mediterranean Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training aims at consolidating a competent workforce in intervention epidemiology and at increasing countries’ capacity to carry out essential public health functions for early detection and response to communicable diseases and other health threats through training activities and networking.

The training programme consists of a 2-years competency-based on-job fellowship training programme (Field Epidemiology Training Programme, FETP) with nine training modules facilitating acquisition of core competencies for outbreak investigation, surveillance, research and other public health skills such as CBRN. These modules are also open one by one to junior and mid-career epidemiologists according to the institutional needs.

Moreover, MediPIET organises training of trainers (ToT) activities, aimed at building a national cadre of competent facilitators/trainers in order to reinforce capacity building through cascade training in their participating countries.
