Postgraduate Training (CPEP)

Committee on Postdoctoral Educational Programs (CPEP)
CPEP accredits training programs that prepare scientists and physicians for leadership roles in the medical microbiology or immunology professions. The usual length of training is two years but may vary depending on the background of the fellow; there are 18 programs located in the U.S.

Trainees in medical microbiology learn diagnostic bacteriology, mycology, parasitology and virology, methods in antimicrobial testing, and techniques used in the molecular diagnosis of infectious diseases. Trainees in medical immunology learn testing for patients with malignancies, immunodeficiencies, autoimmune disease, allergy, and infectious diseases, as well as for patients treated with transplantation. All trainees receive research training and conduct original or collaborative research in conjunction with their clinical training. In addition, trainees study laboratory management, epidemiology, public health and laboratory safety.
