SIMSO provides critical coordination and oversight of division-wide Surveillance and Information Management (SIM) activities.

Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will learn to cover a range of activities with surveillance and information system management activities, including organizing SIM documentation (e.g., data use agreements, security paperwork, etc.), learning to create a database of CDC-wide SIM contacts and SMEs, learning to track documents in SIMSO SharePoint and OneDrive, activities related to coordinating regular evaluations of surveillance and information systems; and training on administrative and logistic aspects of coordinating meetings and webinars with CDC-wide SIM contacts and SMEs.
