An Online Training Course
ISDS, in partnership with the Tufts University School of Medicine and Tufts Health Care Institute, has created an online course in syndromic surveillance. This program is designed to increase knowledge and foster collaboration between public health and clinical practitioners new to syndromic surveillance. This training is divided into four one-hour, self-paced modules and is available at no cost. Each module consists of a set of narrated slides.
*The development of these online modules was funded by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in 2010.
The curriculum for this course was originally developed under a series of ISDS Consultations funded by a cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in 2007. The Education & Training Committee convened a small conference in May 2007 of 10 syndromic surveillance experts to develop an online continuing medical education curriculum (proceedings published in Advances in Disease Surveillance 2007).
