South African Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Programme (SAFELTP)

"The South African Field Epidemiology Training Programme (SAFETP) is requesting applications for the incoming 2019 class from qualified health professionals with an interest in public health and commitment to public service.

SAFETP is hosted by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) of the National Health Laboratory Services (NHLS), for the National Department of Health with technical and financial support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention South Africa. The program is a combination of didactic and practical training in which the resident is grounded in the academic basics of applied epidemiology and is assigned to field sites where he or she learns by doing while being mentored by supervisors in projects that address key public health priorities.

This residency program is a two-year, full-time training, from which residents graduate with either a Masters in Public Health (MPH) from the University of Pretoria or a Masters in Epidemiology (MSc) in Field Epidemiology from the University of the Witwatersrand. The 2019 cohort will begin in January 2019 and end in December 2020 and applicants are required to apply at both the University of Pretoria and the University of the Witwatersrand."
