Introduction to Epidemiology
This course studies the distribution and determinants of health related events in human populations. Using a population-based approach, this course will introduce students to practical disease concepts, descriptive and analytic methods of investigation, and establishment of causal relations through hypothesis generation and statistical evaluation. As a fundamental component of preventative medicine and public health, epidemiology aims to improve our understanding of how to improve the health and social conditions of people.
