- Program Description:
- This course aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to make valuable contributions to both epidemiological research and public health. Epidemiological methods are used increasingly in medical research, public health practice and health care evaluation to investigate the causes of disease, and to evaluate interventions to prevent or control disease. Epidemiology is a key discipline for understanding and improving global health. This course covers both communicable and non-communicable disease epidemiology.
Graduates enter careers in medical research, public health and community medicine, epidemiological field studies, drug manufacturers, government or NGOs.
By the end of this course, students should be able to: demonstrate advanced knowledge and awareness of the role of epidemiology and its contribution to other health-related disciplines; choose appropriate designs and develop detailed protocols for epidemiological studies; enter and manage computerised epidemiological data and carry out appropriate statistical analyses; assess the results of epidemiological studies (their own or other investigators'), including critical appraisal of the study question, study design, methods and conduct, statistical analyses and interpretation.
