In an effort to increase the educational opportunities and course offerings available to graduate students, the University of Maryland School of Public Health (UMD SPH) and the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Maryland (UM) School of Medicine have worked together to develop a number of courses available to students in both College Park and Baltimore using remote-access technology. This helps minimize some of the logistical challenges for students from the College Park campus in participating in UMB courses that are taught in Baltimore.

This fall, four new courses will be available for graduate students on both campuses. Cancer Epidemiology (EPIB 631) will be a joint UMD/UM SOM course located in College Park with videoconference for students at UMB; this course will be co-taught by Cher Dallal, assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Dr. Clement Adebamowo, professor in the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health at UM SOM. There will also be three UM SOM courses with remote access for students at UMD SPH: Infectious Disease Epidemiology: A Global Perspective (PREV 749), Biology of Aging (GERO 711), and Epidemiology of Aging (PREV/GERO  681).

Other non-remote courses at UMB are also available, including core courses such as Biostatical Methods (PH 621), Health Services Policy, Management and Finance (PH 648), and Environmental and Occupational Health (PH 688). Non-remote courses are open to UMD students but must be taken in-person in Baltimore.
