Our Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases unit is designed to allow students to understand the principles of infectious disease emergence and transmission using current cases and examples.

The course reviews the traditional tools of outbreak and epidemic investigation, combined with ideas on environmental change as a major driving force behind disease emergence.

Topics covered include:

  • Australian and global perspectives on emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases
  • links between environmental change and infectious diseases
  • infections from food and water sources
  • vector-borne illnesses, with a major emphasis on Australian examples
  • principles of infectious disease transmission
  • infection patterns in at-risk populations
  • infectious disease surveillance
  • the assessment and management of epidemics and outbreaks
  • bioterrorism
  • successes and failures in infectious disease control

Course outline

The five-day course will consist of a combination of lectures, practical case studies and discussions of recent regional and global outbreaks.
