The COVID 19 pandemic has highlighted the need for capacity building for infectious diseases, not only in the developing world but also in developed nations. The healthcare infrastructure worldwide has been caught by a surprise and is struggling to keep pace with the rapid contagion. Infectious disease specialists both at tertiary care and public health grassroots levels are important in treating and controlling infectious diseases.

There is a tremendous need for infectious disease professionals worldwide. In addition, continuous training of healthcare professionals is extremely important, to help them know about the evolving best practices in the management of novel and emerging infectious diseases.

The ‘MPH Infectious Disease’ program provides a focussed understanding of infectious diseases including microbiology principles, public health, nosocomial infections, epidemiology, biostatistics, nutrition, immunology, research methodology, surveillance, and drug development.

This is a comprehensive program for students to acquire an advanced understanding of diverse infectious diseases including their diagnosis, treatment, control, and epidemiology. Students complete a project under the mentorship of an expert infectious disease specialist. Mentors help students to find such opportunities for research.
