Course objectives
Students will be able at the end of course "epidemiology of infectious diseases" to understand and explain the epidemic process and factors affecting the transmission of infections.
They will be capable to use the information about the current events and epidemiologic situation.
Students should be able to create repressive anti-epidemic measures in outbreaks.
They should master the basic theoretic and practical knowledge of infectious and non-communicable diseases epidemiology in order to implement preventive measures.
Finishing the course, students will be able to give a reasoned decision in relation to the cumulative incidence of known infectious diseases and on the basis of acquired knowledge to derive anti-epidemic measures, even for those unusual situations, such as mutated viruses, and high contagious diseases, etc.
Students will be able to interpret laboratory and clinical examinations in relation to the transmission of infections.
