This is the graduate level section of Epidemiology. This course introduces the principles and methods used in epidemiologic research through a combination of didactic lectures, classroom discussions, applied projects, and problem sets to explore epidemiologic methods and research, including disease occurrence, measures of association, causal inference, and applications of epidemiologic methods to global and public health research. Epidemiologic principles in the design, conduct, and interpretation of findings from observational and experimental studies will be explored in detail, including strengths and limitations of study designs. The weekly problem sets and discussion section will require integration of methodological concepts with applications to develop a sound understanding of epidemiologic methods and research approaches.
