The Yale School of Public Health’s Summer Course in Public Health Modeling is an exciting opportunity to learn to understand and implement the latest techniques from distinguished Yale faculty and network with an international group of public health researchers.
The course is designed to provide researchers, clinicians, industry professionals, and policymakers with the systems-based perspective and analytic tools they need to better understand and manage the complex forces that drive the health of populations. Course topics include prediction and control of infectious disease outbreaks such as COVID-19, optimal decision-making in healthcare delivery, and designing interventions to mitigate the effects of drug overdoses.
Course instructors are Yale faculty experts in epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy, and health care operations who have been at the forefront of informing model-guided responses to COVID-19 locally, nationally, and around the world.
I came to this course because I felt without understanding enough statistical methods, I don’t even know how to ask questions, what to ask? and how to generate ideas? The course opened doors for us to develop many research ideas.
