The 2014 Ebola epidemic was the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the National Ebola Training and Education Center (NETEC) in July of 2015 to increase the competency of healthcare and public health workers and the capability of healthcare facilities to deliver safe, efficient, and effective patient care.

The National Ebola Training and Education Center is comprised of faculty and staff from Emory University, the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine and the New York Health + Hospitals Corporation, Bellevue Hospital Center. All three of these healthcare institutions have safely and successfully treated patients with Ebola and have worked diligently over the past two years to share their knowledge with other healthcare facilities and public health jurisdictions. The goal of the NETEC is to combine these resources into one comprehensive assessment, education and training tool for healthcare systems throughout the United States.


There is no tuition cost for this program.

Please do not make travel arrangements until your attendance has been confirmed by NETEC. Attendance confirmation will be emailed to registrants by a member of the NETEC once your Eventbrite registration is received.NETEC will not be responsible for any losses incurred by registrants, including but not limited to airfare cancellation or hotel deposits.

There are 120 seats available at each course. The workshop is beneficial to both healthcare workers and public health professionals. If state public health staff attend, the NETEC recommends they travel with their designated Ebola Treatment or Assessment Hospital staff to increase coordination and collaboration. Additionally, state health departments should prioritize participating hospitals based on the readiness needs in their jurisdiction. Hospital attendees may include, but are not limited to, medical and/or nursing staff, administration, education/training leadership, and infection control leadership. Staff specializing in communications, occupational injury management, specialized clinical areas, laboratory, facilities management and environmental services are also welcome. In the registration form we do ask attendees to list their roles in order for the NETEC to perform program evaluation and quality improvement efforts.

BREAK OUT SESSIONS During registration attendees must choose break-out sessions. The clinical track will include simulation skills stations where participants will remain in their PPE for up to 4 hours. The NETEC requests attendees to travel with their facility-specific PPE so they can practice these skills with their own equipment and PPE protocols.

  • On Day 1 attendees choose either the Clinical Track or the Leadership track. Only 24 bedside clinicians and 12 MD’s may register for the clinical track on Day 1 (for a total of 36). These participants will stay in that break-out session for 4 hours. Running concurrently that afternoon is the Leadership track, where attendees will rotate between 2-two hour sessions.

  • On Day 2 another 24 bedside clinicians and 12 MD’s may register for the Clinical Track (for a total of 36). You may not attend the clinical track twice, the same information is presented on Day 1 and Day 2. Running concurrently that morning are 3 session options, registrants attending these may choose 2 of the 3 offerings.


There is no conference fee for this training . Working meals and light snacks during breaks are provided as indicated in the agenda. Travel expenses are not covered by NETEC and are the responsibility of the attendee and/or their sponsoring organization.
