We currently run several courses in mathematical modelling:
- Modelling and the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases (February /March): 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 (June): 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.
- Model Fitting and Inference for Infectious Disease Dynamics (July): a short course on fitting models to case series data.
- Modern Techniques for Modelling Infectious Disease Dynamics (November): a short course giving participants working knowledge of using R to code dynamic transmission models.
Members of the cmmid have written an introductory modelling textbook An Introduction to Infectious Disease Modelling, published by Oxford University Press.
