Level II or Intermediate training promotes the development and application of more in-depth field epidemiology skills. Advanced topics are taught under the nine core domains and an additional domain, Teaching and Mentoring is introduced at Level II to promote programme sustainability. Graduates from this level are expected to be future programme mentors.
In terms of field competency products, graduates are expected to undertake outbreak investigation and surveillance reports using analytical statistics, as well as, conduct a health system evaluation and design a study protocol. Intermediate training takes place over a year and involves both classroom training and fieldwork.
