Geographical Epidemiology

This summer, June 11-15, 2012 to be exact, the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph will be offering a 1 week course entitled Geographical Epidemiology.

And I am happy to report that I will be joining Olaf Berke, Zvonimir Poljak, Rob Deardon, David Pearl, and Julie Horrocks as one of the instructors of the course.

The course is intended to be an introduction to methods used to analyze disease and disease spread in populations (be those wildlife, or human). This course will be of particular interest to people studying, researching, or working in the fields of public health, veterinary epidemiology, biostatistics and/or medical geography.

General topics will include Likelihood and Bayesian methods for disease mapping, cluster analysis and detection, and regression modelling.

Students of the University of Guelph who wish to enroll should search WebAdvisor for the summer offering POPM6950 (section 01). There is an $85 +HST fee for students. For non-students, registration costs $595 +HST.
