Notice to Readers: International Course in Applied Epidemiology

CDC and Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health will cosponsor a course, "International Course in Applied Epidemiology" on October 2--27, 2000, in Atlanta, Georgia. This basic course in epidemiology is directed at public health professionals from countries other than the United States.

The course's content includes presentations and discussions of epidemiologic principles, basic statistical analysis, public health surveillance, field investigations, surveys and sampling, and discussions of the epidemiologic aspects of current major public health problems in international health. Included are small group discussions of epidemiologic case exercises based on field investigations. Participants are encouraged to give a short presentation reviewing some epidemiologic data from their own country. Computer training using EpiInfo, a software program developed at CDC and the World Health Organization for epidemiologists is included. Prerequisites are familiarity with the vocabulary and principles of basic epidemiology or completion of CDC's "Principles of Epidemiology" homestudy course (SS3030) or equivalent. Preference will be given to applicants whose work involves priority public health problems in international health. There is a tuition charge.
