Population medicine forum is a seminar-based class during which current topics in population health are presented and discussed. Topics covered include: Outbreak investigation, observational epidemiologic research, risk analysis, spatial analysis, the application of unique diagnostic technologies and epidemiologic modeling.

The Veterinary Public Health course descriptor is no longer associated with a graduate program.


Consequently we request that the course be transfered to the Comparative Biomedical Sciences Program.
