180.612.01 Advanced Environmental Health I

Focuses on the foundational knowledge and methods and their application in environmental health and engineering needed by doctoral students to prepare for careers in environmental health. Frames how environmental contaminants originating from four environmental vectors, Air, Water, Soil and Food, impact human health.
Learning Objectives
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
  1. Determine and apply through a team effort the interdisciplinary stakeholder groups and strategies needed to address environmental health and engineering problems
  2. Identify knowledge gaps in our understanding of how environmental hazards in combination with host factors impact health outcomes
  3. Compare and contrast specific analytic methodologies currently used in environmental health and engineering research in the context of topics covered in the course
  4. Propose both short and long-term solutions to current problems in environmental health through research, policy and the communication of the science to impacted communities
  5. Work in an interdisciplinary team to develop a grant proposal for a population based or mechanistic study of an environmental exposure through the air, water, food or soil
