History & Membership Information
Based on a virtual meeting of five students from around the world on 20th April 2010, and followed by the first face to face meeting during the XIX International Epidemiological Association (IEA) World Congress of Epidemiology (WCE) in Edinburgh (Scotland), in August 2011, the Executive Council of the IEA affirmed its support of an international “Early Career Epidemiologist (ECE)” group within the IEA structure. In 2021 the first elections took place and regional representatives along with a representative to IEA Council were appointed.
Membership in IEA as an Early Career Epidemiologist/Student is based on a term of three years and dues are as follows: USD $5 for applicants from low income countries; USD $10 for joint applications (those who already have membership in a local/national epidemiological organization), and: USD $20 for a direct application to IEA.
