The Epidemiology Series consists of three modules:
1. "Epidemiology for Preparedness", which is the first online module in the Epidemiology Series and is a pre-requisite for the two additional modules (online curriculum).
2. "Outbreak Epidemiology" (both online curriculum and an in-person workshop).
3. "Forensic Epidemiology" (in-person workshop).
The "Epidemiology for Preparedness" online module is designed to describe ways in which epidemiology is utilized in a variety of preparedness activities. The module will introduce participants to the basics of public health epidemiology and will describe ways that preparedness principles and command structures can be applied to every day activities to help familiarize public health professionals with the incident command structure, and to provide examples of how epidemiologists may function during an emergency.
"Outbreak Epidemiology" covers basic information on infectious disease epidemiology, the reasons why outbreaks are investigated, and the reporting of disease in Arizona. The majority of the module covers the 12 steps to investigating a communicable disease outbreak, which is helpful for both public health professionals who have investigated disease in the past as well as those who may participate in an investigation in the future. Outbreak Epidemiology is a blended course of both online curriculum and an in-person workshop. Once you have completed the online portion of the course, you will be set an email with a information regarding the dates and locations for the in-person workshops.
The "Forensic Epidemiology" course is an in-person workshop. For more information, please contact Kristen Pogreba-Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 520-882-5852 ext. 18
