Course Description: This course will focus on the epidemiological methods used in infectious disease, and strategies for their control or elimination. The faculty-facilitated seminars will focus on key readings in the field and will be led by students. The course covers concepts and methods to assess transmissions, pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical control measures, outbreak investigation, and one health approach to fight health issues at the human-animal-environment interface, including zoonotic diseases.
Prerequisites: Students will need to have an understanding of basic epidemiological and statistical methods as covered in Epi203 (Epidemiologic Methods I) and Bio200 (Biostatistical Methods for Clinical Research I). Familiarity with an analysis software package is non-essential but encouraged in particular in those who choose “analysis data of an infectious disease” as their project.
