We currently run several courses in mathematical modelling:
- “Modelling and the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases”: as part of the MSc programmes offered at the School, this can be taken as a London-based course or via Distance Learning as part of the LSHTM’s large and expanding distance learning programme.
- “Introduction to Infectious Disease Modelling and Its Applications”: this two-week intensive short course on mathematical modelling is offered every summer. This course has been successfully run for many years now, and is intended to serve as an introduction to modelling for health care professionals and others working on infectious diseases.
We plan to extend the short courses that we offer; a course on fitting models to case series data is in development, to be launched in summer 2014 – watch this space for more details.
Members of the cmmid have written an introductory modelling textbook An Introduction to Infectious Disease Modelling, published by Oxford University Press.
