Spring 2 2010

Dr. D. Dockery, Dr. M. Kile
2.5 credits
Lectures, case studies. Two 2-hour sessions each week.

This course focuses on analytic methods for assessing environmental exposures and hazards. This course is directed at first year Environmental Health graduate students and MPH students with some knowledge of environmental health or who have taken EH201. It is designed for students desiring more emphasis on quantitative approaches, and can be used as a sequel to EH201 or as a substitute for EH201 for those with sufficient background. Students will learn methods for quantitative evaluation and public health responses to environmental hazards through lectures, problem solving, and case studies. The course is structured around specific tools including exposure assessment, epidemiology, toxicology and pathophysiology, risk assessment, life cycle analysis, and environmental policy.

Course evaluations are an important method for feedback on the quality of course offerings. The submission of a course evaluation is a requirement for this course. Your grade for the course will be made available only after you have submitted responses to at least the first three questions of the on-line evaluation for this course.

Spring 1 2010

Dr. D. Dockery, Dr. M. Kile
2.5 credits
Lectures, case studies. Two 2-hour sessions each week.

This course is appropriate for students interested in learning quantitative methods for assessing environmental exposures and hazards. This course is directed at first year Environmental Health students and MPH students with specific interest or experience in environmental health or for those students who have taken EH 201. Students who have taken EH 201 can take EH 202 as a sequel for more intensive training in environmental health. Students will learn methods for quantitative evaluation and public health responses to environmental hazards through lectures, problem solving, and case studies. The course is structured around specific tools including exposure assessment, epidemiology, toxicology and pathophysiology, risk assessment, life cycle analysis, and environmental policy.

Spring 2 2007

Dr. D. Dockery, Dr. M. Kile
2.5 credits
Lectures, case studies. Two 2-hour sessions each week.

This course focuses on the methods of qualitative and quantitative environmental risk assessment and the use of scientific data policy development and risk management. Sources of data for hazard identification, the influence of models of disease on dose extrapolation, and the importance of populations affected on priorities for management will be illustrated in a range of case studies relating to environmental hazards.
