Topics in Advanced Epidemiology: Lecture & Laboratory
Provides the student with an introduction to advanced epidemiologic content areas as well as methods designed to meet the research and practice needs of health professionals. A series of topic-driven lectures, discussions, applied problem sets and case studies will focus on the application of epidemiologic principles used in disease research and intervention studies. This course is taught with a corresponding laboratory each week that emphasizes the content of the course with applied applications using the microcomputer or small group discussions. Problem sets will require the use of statistical and epidemiologic software for the microcomputer. Some content areas of the course will use the Do-Epi software developed by the CDC for teaching epidemiology and computing.
