Infectious Disease Epidemiology – 4 credits PCB4917
This course provides an overview of human infectious diseases and their dynamics. After an initial look at how epidemics grow and the ways different professions think about diseases, each week will focus on a different mode of transmission (e.g. air borne, food and water, sexual interactions) and the associated diseases. As epidemiology is a highly integrative field, we will talk about everything from microbiology to statistics, pharmacology to public health decisions.
