    This course is designed for those working in public health or related disciplines who have an interest in immunisation, and would like to broaden their knowledge and skills. This course will provide students with a comprehensive appreciation of vaccine-preventable disease epidemiology and national immunisation policies relevant to low, middle and high resourced countries and in the context of global immunisation goals.

    The course encompasses diverse aspects from vaccine development and clinical trials, policy development, program implementation and evaluation, vaccine safety and public perceptions of risk. This course aims to provide graduates with knowledge and skills in the epidemiological principles and policy issues required to develop, implement and evaluate immunisation programs. The course draws on internationally recognised experts with a breadth of experience, and has an emphasis on practical learning experiences using real case scenarios. PHCM9050 Immunisation Policy and Practice will consist of weekly lectures and tutorials.

    It is important that students enrolling in the course have knowledge and experience in public health or a health-related area. Interested students, who are not enrolled in a Masters program offered by the School of Public Health and Community Medicine will need to contact the course convenor, who will assess whether they have the appropriate background, before enrolling in PHCM9050 Immunisation Policy and Practice.
