Public health informatics is an emerging interdisciplinary field focusing on the use of information technology in public health practice, research, and education. This course provides an introduction to the field through exposure to core concepts of public health and epidemiology and examination of national and local public health informatics initiatives. Students will become familiar with informatics problems in the public health domain by evaluating existing surveillance systems and examining the breadth of existing information management systems.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
