Announcement: International Course in Applied Epidemiology

CDC and Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University will cosponsor the International Course in Applied Epidemiology, from September 24 to October 19, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia. This basic course in applied epidemiology is designed for public health professionals who work abroad and public health professionals from countries other than the United States.

Course content will include epidemiologic principles, basic statistical analysis, public health surveillance, field investigations, surveys and sampling, and the epidemiologic aspects of current major public health problems in global health. Small group discussions of epidemiologic case exercises based on field investigations also will be conducted. Participants are encouraged to give a short presentation reviewing some epidemiologic data from their own country. Computer training using Epi Info 7, a software program developed at CDC for epidemiologists, will be included.

Prerequisites for enrollment include familiarity with the vocabulary and principles of basic epidemiology, or completion of CDC's Principles of Epidemiology home-study course or equivalent. Preference will be given to applicants whose work involves priority public health problems in global health. Tuition is charged.
