HUMBIO 154A: Outbreaks, Epidemics, & Disease Control Systems (SOMGEN 254)

This course teaches skills in disease control epidemiology. Students will engage in in-depth interdisciplinary study of disease detection and control strategies from a "systems science" perspective, which addresses classical public health dilemmas, such as how to allocate limited resources, investigate disease outbreaks, and analyze common problems at the intersection of social policy and public health. Lectures and problem sets will focus on developing quantitative skills essential to public health practice, emphasizing the use of common mathematical techniques for disease control. Readings will complement the lectures and problem sets by offering critical perspectives from the sociology of public health. In-depth case studies from non-governmental organizations, departments of public health, and international agencies will drive the course. Human Biology 154 courses can be taken separately or as a series.
