Extracted from the Nigeria Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (NFELTP) Website:
“The NFELTP is a two-year, full-time training and service program in applied epidemiology. Residents of the program select one of three tracks for study: Medical Epidemiology, Laboratory Epidemiology and Management, or Veterinary Epidemiology."
"Unlike many training opportunities, FELTP is a fundamentally field-based program. The classroom instruction is intended to provide a background in the sciences and methodologies that support and give grounding to the activities that take place in the field. The didactic component will comprise 25% of the focus, while field assignment activities will make up 75% of the program."
