Outbreak investigation is one of the primary and most critical activities in epidemiology. Infectious disease outbreaks always require intense, rapid on-site response and gain front page headlines.  Bacterial or viral outbreaks occur quickly, and students and professionals should know how to react.  This title uses "Field Epidemiology" - the application of epidemiology methods for unexpected health problems requiring fast, on-site investigation for timely intervention.
