Professional epidemiologists are often called on to investigate outbreaks and epidemics. This course serves as an introduction to the essentials of investigation, identifying pathogens, figuring out what's going on, reporting, and responding. You'll learn how to ask precise epidemiologic questions and apply epidemiologic tools to uncover the answers. You'll also learn about basic epidemic dynamics and the terrible law that cause them to grow, as well as the reasons why they recede and eventually go away. The course concludes with deep dives into some real outbreaks from Ebola, in West Africa, to the opioid epidemic in the United States.

An enjoyable, and really great review! I learned so much, and refreshed so much I had forgotten I knew! Everyone should take this.
Was a very Enlightening and Understandable course. But i wish that there were more basic incorporated and explained. Overall a very good course.
Really great content. Only thing bringing it from 5 to 4 stars - the module exercises during the course gave no answers, so I didn't know if I was on the right track answering the practice questions.
This course was very informative, and presented in an easy to follow format for someone with limited prior knowledge of the subject matter.
