CLRA 6235 - Epidemiology♦


(3 sem. cr.) Students are provided with an overview of epidemiologic methodology in the study of the distribution and etiology of disease and health-related conditions in human populations in this course. Students examine important study designs and discuss the strengths and weaknesses inherent in each. They also explore issues related to inference and causality that can be derived from studies as well as approaches to the evaluation of preventive measures. Students engage in assignments designed to provide practical application of course concepts on a variety of topics, such as calculation and interpretation of measures, acute outbreak investigations, incidence and prevalence, observational study designs, and investigation of randomized trials.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
