This course will be of use for public health and health care professionals, microbiologists, civil and environmental engineers, environmental scientists and bio-defense specialists. COURSE OBJECTIVES: On completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. Recognize the major classes of environmentally transmitted pathogens and describe specific examples for each class in different environmental media; 2. Discuss the major epidemiological elements of environmentally transmitted infectious disease; 3. Summarize the major exposure pathways and routes of transmission; 4. Compare and contrast the different types of microbiologically relevant foodborne disease; 5. Discuss factors that affect occurrence, growth, and persistence of microbiologic agents and by-products in food; 6. Outline and distinguish the factors affecting the persistence, fate and mobility of microbial hazards in water; 7. Discuss the trends in waterborne disease; 8. Identify and describe factors affecting transmission of microbiological agents by surfaces; 9. Summarize fomitic and sharps-based transmission of infectious agents; 10. Demonstrate an understanding of occupationally relevant exposures to microbiological hazards;
