  • Apply and define outbreak investigation techniques and evidence-based infection prevention strategies.
  • Evaluate the unique approaches to infection prevention among special populations.
  • Describe the role of leadership and clinical education in infection prevention efforts.
  • Gain a working knowledge of the role of the healthcare epidemiologist in antimicrobial stewardship, epidemiology research, the microbiology laboratory, and emergency preparedness.
