Bioterrorism Training and Curriculum Development Project

The purpose of the California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) Bioterrorism Training and Curriculum Development Project (BTCDP) is to develop a culturally relevant bioterrorism and disaster preparedness curriculum that is multidisciplinary, experiential and problem-based. The curriculum will be used to prepare prospective professionals in four or more disciplines in the College of Health and Human Services including: Health Science, Nursing, Health Care Administration, and Professional Studies.

California State University, Long Beach is located in Southern Los Angeles County, on the Pacific Coast. It is about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. This University is a large, urban, comprehensive university in the California State University (CSU) system. Founded in 1949, its mission is high quality education leading toward a broad range of baccalaureate and graduate degrees spanning 63 academic departments from liberal arts to the sciences and many applied & professional fields. Because of its strategic location, cultural diversity, and health departments, Long Beach is an ideal field laboratory in which a bioterrorist or disaster management curriculum can be designed, implemented, evaluated and fully integrated into existing undergraduate and graduate programs.
