Course Description:

Being able to interpret primary literature and being effective communicators are necessary skills for individuals who participate in all aspects of scientific and health professions. The 7100 series courses will allow students to gain skills in reading scientific articles and to practice the art of communication (both oral and written) with their peers. Each 7100 series course will involve students to make a group presentation as well as write several short synopses of assigned research papers. Two 7100 series courses are required for students enrolled in the evening Master’s programs. Open to other MS and PhD students. Enrollment for each 7100 series course is limited to 18 students. The specific focus of this course is the epidemiology and biology of newly emerging and reemerging infectious diseases. Review articles and primary research papers that utilize epidemiological and evolutionary approaches to the study of new diseases and disease outbreaks will be stressed.
