The field placement will provide students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills acquired through their Master of Public Health academic program to a problem involving the health of the community. The financial-aid package will consist of a stipend as well as a scholarship to cover tuition, mandatory fees, and individual basic health insurance. The value of simple models, rapidly built with available data, to aid decision makers during response to catastrophic infectious disease events will be demonstrated through 4 models: 1) Estimating, in near real-time, the impact of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic; 2) Modeling input to aid the decision regarding the production of H3N2v monovalent vaccine; 3) Estimating impact of proposed vaccination for a hypothetical H5N2 influenza pandemic (exercise); and 4) A Risk-Benefit analysis of different options for testing and treating asymptomatic patients potentially infected with contaminated steroid product.
