  25. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course:
  26. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? Currently the course has a computer lab to instruct students on the use of a statistical software program called Epi-info. After having taught the course for three years it has been shown that the Epi-info software should not be specific to this course, but shared and integrated with Global Health Applications in the Field (PHC 6442). PHC6442 is currently a two credit course that is being changed to three credits to accommodate this revision. Students will benefit by having the knowledge and skills to learn and apply the software program in both courses.
  27. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
