Notice to Readers: Epidemiology in Action: Intermediate Methods

Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health Epidemiology/International Health Departments and CDC will cosponsor "Epidemiology in Action: Intermediate Methods" during February 24--28, 2003. The course provides additional training in applied epidemiology to those who have taken the introductory "Epidemiology in Action" or a similar introductory course in applied epidemiology. The focus of this course is aimed at strengthening the quantitative skills needed by public health practitioners working to resolve public health problems and institute control and prevention measures. The emphasis is on data analysis procedures to evaluate an exposure-disease relation involving several explanatory variables.

The course includes a review of the fundamentals of descriptive epidemiology and biostatistics, options for control of extraneous variables, stratification, matching, logistic regression, modeling strategies, survival analysis, and computer programs useful in epidemiology.

Successful completion of work in fundamentals of epidemiology and biostatistics, familiarity with use of a computer, including previous experience in Epi Info and/or SAS, is required. Participation in the introductory Epidemiology In Action course or in a similar course will satisfy the prerequisites. There is a tuition charge. Application deadline is February 1 or until filled.
