Foodborne Disease Epidemiology
Semester: Fall, Summer
This is a graduate level course in epidemiology in which most of the teaching examples regard foodborne disease. Most modules have a textbook reading, a PowerPoint lecture with audio, some outside readings and a discussion. Four of the modules break from this format and immerse the student in foodborne disease outbreak investigations. Practical field epidemiology is emphasized over statistical/analytical epidemiology. Students completing this course should be able to use the basic tools of epidemiology to conduct disease surveillance, outbreak investigation and disease control programs.
