1 Dr. Shruti Mehta, Director The development of antibiotics, improved access to safe food, clean water, sewage disposal and vaccines has led to dramatic progress in controlling infectious diseases. Despite these remarkable achievements, infectious diseases remain the leading causes of death in many parts of the world. Emerging diseases, such as antibiotic-resistant bacteria, SARS coronavirus, and avian and swine influenza viruses have been identified and some have become established in both the developed and developing world. The aim of the infectious disease track is to build upon the core epidemiology curriculum to provide students with the requisite knowledge of the epidemiology, analytical and laboratory methodology, immunology and pathogen biology necessary to understand the dynamic interactions of infectious agents and their hosts, vectors and environment. Capitalizing on the wide range of infectious disease interests at the school, students in this track take a range of courses offered in the Department of Epidemiology and other departments to obtain a broad and thorough understanding of infectious disease epidemiology. A strength of Infectious Disease Epidemiology is the substantial involvement of faculty with preeminent national and international studies of infectious diseases. The Department is particularly strong in the area of HIV/AIDS, where faculty established vanguard studies, including the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) and AIDS Linked to the Intravenous Experience (ALIVE) that have made fundamental contributions to the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in the United States. Other areas of focus include other chronic infections such as hepatitis infections and tuberculosis as well as acute infections including dengue, cholera, malaria, influenza. Research studies within the program range from the molecular to behavioral, from population-based surveys to long-term observational studies to large scale cluster-randomized trials to test behavioral and pharmacologic interventions. Through seminars and discussions with faculty, students become familiar with ongoing projects within the Infectious Disease Epidemiology concentration. These projects afford unique opportunities to gain research experience not obtained through coursework, as well as valuable settings for masters and doctoral thesis projects. In the Infectious Disease Epidemiology track, masters and doctoral students are required to complete a minimum number of credit hours in required and elective courses in four broad categories as listed below. These four categories are 1) required core courses in infectious disease epidemiology; 2) biology and pathogenesis of infectious diseases; 3) advanced analytical and statistical methods (for PhD and ScD students); and 4) electives in infectious disease epidemiology. Students should meet with their academic advisors to plan an enriching program that will meet their individual academic goals. Required and elective courses may be revised periodically.
