Survey of graduates of the epidemic intelligence service as an approach to enhancing ethnic diversity among the Nation's epidemiologists.
A survey was conducted to improve the recruitment, training, and retention of epidemiologists in the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Program of the Centers for Disease Control.
The authors compared minority graduates of the program and nonminority graduates in several areas: reasons for application, degree of satisfaction, appropriateness of preparation for epidemiologic practice, and current professional activities.
A closed-ended questionnaire was mailed to all 87 minority graduates,from the program during the period 1970-88, and to 172 randomly selected nonminority graduates.
