BMTRY 738 Field Epidemiology

Description

This class introduces students to the field epidemiology tools that can be used in public health practice with a focus on the many types of population health assessments which are used by public health practitioners. The focus of this class will be on the practical applications of health assessments of populations exposed to infectious, communicable, and environmental contaminants rather that research or clinical applications. The health assessments taught are all tools currently used in public health epidemiology practice and are rarely used in epidemiology research. After completion of this course students will be sufficiently prepared to use public health population assessment tools in entry-level regulatory and professional practice careers.
