Announcing a New MSC course: control of infectious diseases

Countries with problems of endemic disease, international agencies and rapidly changing health scenarios demand individuals with training in intervention skills. This new course will bridge the disciplines of epidemiology, laboratory sciences and public health & policy, and will train or retrain students who wish to work directly on the implementation of disease control. The course is suitable for the staff of health ministries, regional or local health departments, national or international disease control agencies, international aid organizations, and research institutes.

Students May concentrate on geographical regions, including Europe, or on individual countries. They May also develop specific expertise in the control of particular infectious diseases. Students will have the opportunity of studying an intervention programme with up to two months spent in a suitable location overseas or in the UK.
