Epidemiology is the study of disease in human populations. In this course, students will learn about the nature and uses of epidemiology, assessments of health outcomes, and about the breadth of study designs used to address various health problems. They will explore how epidemiology can be used to determine causes of diseases, disease-related associations with various risk factors, and how this impacts the
practice of medicine. Ethical issues in epidemiology will also be discussed.
