A group of five ECDC observers are selected from ESCV and offered a 5-day program at the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) in Stockholm, Sweden. The Observership Visit offers a unique insight into Public Health Epidemiology and will allow the awardee to interact both with experienced ECDC staff and with new EUPHEM recruits. The aims and objectives of the ECDC Observer visit can be found on the ECDC website.

While open to all our members, it would be especially useful for members considering a future EUPHEM application. Selection will be based on the application and CV details of each applicant. Otherwise the date and time of submission of the application will be the criteria for selection (first come, first served). If interested, please download the Application Form, complete and return to Peter Coyle as directed on the form, before May 31st 2015.

The ESCV E-learning program is now available, free of charge for members and people attending the Prague meeting. The program is approved by the Austrian Medical association and CME credits given should be accepted in European and other countries.
