Science of the COVID-19 Pandemic (MEDS 3010) Lecture Series

The University of Cincinnati’s undergraduate program in Medical Sciences is excited to offer the course “MEDS3010: Science of the COVID-19 Pandemic” as a publicly available lecture series during Spring 2021. This innovative and timely course was developed by current students and alumni of the Medical Sciences program with the support of Dr. William Miller and Dr. Anil Menon of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. We hope these lectures will serve as an enriching and free resource for members of the Cincinnati, regional, and national community to expand their knowledge of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. By increasing public knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic from experts in the clinical, scientific, and humanistic considerations of COVID-19, we hope to lessen the uncertainty surrounding the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Science of the COVID-19 Pandemic” features subject matter experts from across UC’s College of Medicine, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and UC Health. Lecture recordings will be made available on this page each Tuesday. Please see below for the full schedule.
