Public health professionals are facing increasing demands to diagnose, prevent and control problems arising from infectious diseases. The Management of Infectious Diseases (MID) specialization of North Dakota State University’s Master of Public Health program is designed to give students the knowledge and expertise required for a successful career in this exciting area.
Students in this specialization can tailor the program to suit their own interests and professional goals by selecting from a variety of learning opportunities that include disease diagnosis and detection, prophylaxis and vaccinology, therapeutics and antibiotic resistance, prevention of disease spread in hospitals or by vectors, public health policy, and emergency responses to emerging diseases and biosecurity threats. In all of these areas, special attention is paid to the application of modern technologies and epidemiologic skills.
