Introduction

The course will begin with tutorial sessions of two divided classes on the first day, for students with respective public health/biomedical and mathematics/natural sciences backgrounds, focusing on respective basic mathematics and infectious disease epidemiology knowledge required for modeling of infectious diseases, followed by combined interdisciplinary lectures and infectious disease issue-driven group discussion sessions. Computer labs will also be schedule in the first week for students to learn to use related software packages for computational work. Lecturers for the 2-week course include internationally well-known experts on modeling of infectious diseases from interdisciplinary backgrounds, as well as medical officers from Epidemic Intelligence Center, Taiwan Center for Disease Control and Prevention (TCDC).

 

[跨領域傳染病建模分析] 專題課程
--------------------------------------------
本次跨領域課程將為期兩週,在開課的第一天針對具有公共衛生/生物醫學及數學/自然科學兩種不同學術領域背景的學員進行分班,分別教學、講授其不同學術領域之基礎知識,讓學員對基礎知識有大致上的了解後再合班授課。本課程重點著重於:

(一)建立傳染病模型所需的數學基本知識及傳染病流行病學知識。

(二)學習使用相關建立模型之應用軟體,練習如何進行建模計算及模擬。

另外,本課程會以綜合跨領域為目的,讓學員們透過分組討論方式以現今傳染病為主題嘗試進行簡單的建模研究,達成理論與實踐之間的串聯。本課程所邀請的講師均學有專長,包括具跨領域背景的國際知名傳染病建模專家,以及台灣疾病管制署(Taiwan CDC)的防疫醫師。

本課程為期兩周,每周分別為一學分之課程,可分別選修。但僅修第二周課程必須先經主辦老師同意。
