PUBH 6366: Modeling and Mapping for Infectious Disease Epidemiology

2 Credits

Infectious disease epidemiology is a topic within the field of epidemiology that covers: 1) Principles and concepts of infectious disease transmission dynamics necessary to understand how and why diseases spread, and 2) Epidemiologic methods, including study designs, needed to quantify key aspects of an infectious disease This course will discuss: 1) How to use modeling to gain insight into the spread and control of infectious disease, and 2) The role that geography and GIS plays in gaining insights into the emergence and spread of an infectious disease. Students will learn key epidemiologic concepts that determine who is at risk for acquiring an infectious disease, how infectious diseases spread, and what measures can be taken to prevent or control the spread of an infectious disease. This course will focus on how simulation modeling and spatial analyses can provide insights into what contributes to the spread of an infectious disease. In addition, students will learn how to read and critically review peer-reviewed publications on infectious disease epidemiology using examples drawn from local, national, and international settings.
