INTRODUCTION TO INFECTIOUS DISEASE MODELLING AND ITS APPLICATIONS

Venue: London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Course dates: 5th - 16th July 2010
Cost: 1,900

Summary:
This two week intensive course is intended to introduce professionals working on infectious diseases in human or animal populations to this exciting and expanding area. The emphasis of the course is on developing a conceptual understanding of the basic methods and on their practical application, rather than the manipulation of mathematical equations. The course provides numerous practical examples, including real-time modelling of outbreaks, pandemic influenza, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, vector-borne and animal diseases, as well as tuberculosis, measles and rubella.
By the end of the course, participants will have deepened their current understanding of infectious disease epidemiology and have gained an understanding and practical experience of the basics of infections disease modelling, which will be useful in their future work.

Further details about the course content are available on the website.
