HLTH 8035 - Epidemiology: Decoding the Science of Public Health
(5 cr.) Epidemiology is the science concerned with controlling and preventing disease in communities.
Students in this course are provided with an epidemiological approach to the study of the incidence, prevalence, and patterns of disease and injury in populations, and the application of this study to the control of public health problems. Key sources of data for epidemiological purposes are identified, and principles and limitations of public health screening programs are addressed. Students learn to calculate basic epidemiological measures and to draw appropriate inferences from epidemiological data and reports. (Prerequisite(s): PUBH 6125).
