PUBH6307: Clinical Epidemiology

2 CreditsField StudyOnline Available

Clinical epidemiology is the science of using population methods to answer individual patient questions. This course in clinical epidemiology will cover the design of epidemiological studies and the analysis and interpretation of epidemiological data in order to answer clinical questions. A variety of study designs methods including cohort, case-control, and cross-sectional study designs will be used. In addition to disease and exposure, the course will cover concepts related to prognosis, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The design and analysis of clinical trials is covered in-depth by other courses (e.g. PubH 7420 and 7415) and hence is not covered here. This course is intended for MS students majoring in clinical research. Others including medical students, students in various MS programs, MPH and PhD programs in the School of Public Health and other interested students are welcome to enroll as long as they meet the course requirements. If you have already studied advanced methods in epidemiology or biostatistics or completed Epi Methods II (PubH 6342) or more advanced courses, please do not take this 2-credit course since there will be redundant material. You may contact the instructor to discuss alternative options instead.
