The veterinary epidemiology workshop materials are contained within this password protected web-based repository. Materials – except PowerPoint Slide Collections – are provided as PDF files unless otherwise noted. The workshop materials are organized as individual building blocks by topic and can be combined to create a curriculum for a workshop with a maximum length of two weeks. A catalog of all materials is available.
The materials were developed for audiences consisting of practicing veterinary professionals with little background knowledge in animal health programs including epidemiology. The aim of these materials is to show the applications of epidemiology as aids for the decision-making process.
These materials are best used when trainers become “facilitators” and not “lecturers”. The materials are designed for a collaborative workshop environment that includes round table discussions and table-top exercises. Readings are provided for each topic and are meant to be studied outside workshop hours.
