Summer 2013 Schedule
Public Health Program
This summer the Public Health (H) program at OSU offers courses designed to help schools, communities, health-related organizations and the business community meet the health challenges of the next decade.
H 521 Mental Health (3)
Examination of social, governmental, legal and individual mental health issues. Brief overview of some major mental disorders.
H 489/589 Emergency and Disaster Management (3)
Study of preparedness, response, recovery and business resumption strategies, activities and applications needed to effectively deal with emergency and disaster incidents.
H 312 Aids and Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Modern Society (3)
Fundamental principles relating to etiology, nature, prevention, and control of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases in contemporary society; emphasis on social, psychological, legal, economic, and ethical issues surrounding these diseases.
H 320 Introduction to Human Disease (3)
Fundamental principles relating to etiology, nature, prevention, and control of communicable and noncommunicable disease in human populations. Special emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion in the high risk diseases of modern, industrialized society.
H 599 Health Development of Displaced Populations (3)
Examines major health development issues related to internally and externally displaced populations, and introduces essential assessment and management skills for addressing these issues. These skills include rapid assessment, rapid response during emergency, application of a basic needs approach, long term planning, assessment and development management. Application of these skills is emphasized in long term health development beyond short term relief.
