The EAN workshops/mini-modules aim to strengthen the capacity of EAN members in specific fields related to field epidemiology but not always covered during the 2-year fellowship programme. They are 'by the members, for the members', supporting the EAN objectives of sharing and exchanging professional experiences, information and skills among members; as well as taking part and assisting in the promotion, development and delivery of training in field epidemiology, public health and public health microbiology.
