FOCUS on Field Epidemiology

FOCUS on Field Epidemiology is a periodical with a hands-on, practical approach to various topics in field epidemiology. It can be used:

  • for computer-based self-study
  • as a face-to-face teaching tool for trainers
  • to add to lunch and learn seminars or in-service trainings

Each issue of FOCUS has a corresponding downloadable PowerPoint® presentation. Included in the periodical is a topic overview with examples, helpful illustrations, a glossary, additional resources, and discussion questions for individuals or groups. Solutions for the questions are posted on the FOCUS website. In addition, online self-evaluation questions complement each issue.
