CEIRS Training Program
The CEIRS Training Program provides opportunities for pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows to:
- Acquire new techniques and research experience;
- Strengthen collaborations;
- Increase research capacity; and
- Expand the infrastructure of the CEIRS Network
A CEIRS Training Executive Committee has been organized with Andrea Sant (NYICE), Jake Kohlmeier (Emory-UGA), Andrew Pekosz (Johns Hopkins), Stacey Schultz-Cherry (SJCEIRS), and Randy Albrecht (CRIP) representing each of the CEIRS Centers.

CEIRS Training Resources
CEIRS has developed an online training portal that provides e-learning modules on topics related to avian influenza and influenza in general. Online training modules provide a user-friendly and easy-to-access educational opportunity to strengthen global capacity for influenza surveillance in animals and enhance understanding of human influenza virology, epidemiology, and disease surveillance. This project maintains and develops a collection of influenza training modules freely available online at the University of Minnesota/CIDRAP website. Each module contains several e-learning interactive lessons and a knowledge check to reinforce learning.
