340.634.11 PERSPECTIVES ON MANAGEMENT OF EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES
- Joel G. Hill
This is an introductory course addressing practical issues of management related to multi-ethnic cohort studies. The course addresses primarily longitudinal, population based studies. In both seminar and lab environment, the course involves lecture, discussion and problem solving on issues of study location, community relations, staffing a team, communication, conflict management as well as issues of quality control and recruitment and retention. Each class begins with lecture/discussion and then in the lab period students will work through real issues of management. Students are also encouraged to bring problems from their own studies or institutions to engage in problem solving. This is a two credit course and offered in conjunction with Conducting Epidemiological Research.
