Introduction to Infectious Diseases






This instructional series was created by the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), Department of Emergency Health Services, with assistance from the Maryland Department of Health, and funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This program is designed to meet the needs of first responders who are expected to deal with the health needs of people who find themselves in health emergencies they cannot manage on their own. These first responders are typically emergency medical services personnel, such as EMTs and paramedics, but can also be first-aid trained fire fighters, law enforcement personnel, and volunteers such as Red Cross disaster workers. Health officers in summer camps, youth clubs, and other organizations that work with groups of people who may have some vulnerability may also benefit from this program.
