After successfully completing this course students are expected to be able to: – explain the concepts and terms used in infectious disease epidemiology – list the steps of an outbreak investigation – describe the functions and problems of a surveillance system – design a simple model for an epidemic – explain how population mixing patterns influence epidemic spread – design a study to test the effectiveness of a vaccine – discuss the important determinants of the antimicrobial resistance problem – discuss national and EU systems to control infectious diseases Learning outcomes are classified according to Bloom's taxonomy: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
