CDC and Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health will co-sponsor a course, "International Course in Applied Epidemiology," during September 27–October 22, 2004, in Atlanta, Georgia. The course is directed at public health professionals from countries other than the United States and will include presentations and discussions of epidemiologic principles, basic statistical analysis, public health surveillance, field investigations, surveys and sampling, and epidemiologic aspects of current major public health problems in international health. Included are small group discussions of epidemiologic case exercises based on field investigations. Participants are encouraged to give a short presentation reviewing epidemiologic data from their own countries.

Computer training using Epi Info (Windows® version), a software program developed by CDC and the World Health Organization for epidemiologists, is included. Prerequisites include familiarity with the vocabulary and principles of basic epidemiology or completion of CDC's "Principles of Epidemiology" home-study course (SS3030) or equivalent. Preference will be given to applicants whose work involves priority public health problems in international health. Early registration deadline is June 1; late registration deadline is September 1. Tuition is charged.
