BIOE 815 - Introduction to Public Health and Preventive Medicine

Cr Hrs: 3 (48-0)

The course introduces students to the identification, understanding, and application of preventive and public health approaches to the wide range of infectious diseases and chronic disease epidemics. Methods to conduct an outbreak investigation will be included in the course. The infectious disease epidemics used as examples will be AIDS and TB. Chronic diseases will mainly focus on cardiovascular disease and methods to assist students in understanding the causal pathways from behavior to morbidity. Students will develop research proposals for identifying, understanding, and intervening on public health problems that are common in urban America. These written proposals, as well as midterm and final written exams, will prepare the students for Master’s thesis and research.
