Epi 568 Infectious Disease Epidemiology

This course provides an introduction to infectious epidemiology, and includes fundamental topics such as outbreak investigation, public health communicable disease surveillance and reporting, biological concepts of disease introduction, evolution and spread, and design of population-based studies to valuate features of infectious diseases (e.g., risk factors, method of spread, clinical features, disease prevalence). This course will also introduce some of the categories of communicable diseases and highlight some features of the major diseases within each category. It builds upon concepts of epidemiology (e.g., risk/odds ratio, case-control and cohort studies, statistical significance) to provide students with a strong understanding of infectious disease concepts and methods such as conducting an outbreak investigation.
