we offer a course in Disease Control and Dynamics - in a One Health setting at master level at Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen starting August 19, 2013.
The course consists of three parts
Part 1 is a distance learning part that takes place between August 19th and 23rd. It mainly involves reading up on principles and concepts of diagnostic test evaluation and prevalence estimation and finalizes with an online test.
Part 2 takes place at Frederiksberg Campus, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences as a 5 day period from August 26th to 30th 2013. It is planned as a series of lectures with interspersed group and individual exercises and assignments. Relevant literature will be supplied or suggested before and during the course.
Part 3 is conducted electronically during a 5 week long period from September 2nd to October 10th 2013 as distance learning. Activities that will be assessed include weekly short assignments, participation in discussion forums and a final 24 hour examination. The time needed to participate in this part of the course is estimated at 2 hours per day, on average.
During the course we will be working with basic methods to map and investigate spatiotemporal patterns of disease and model dynamics of infections in human and animal populations.
