PUBH 8520 - Advanced Epidemiology Methods♦


(5 cr.) The principles of epidemiologic design, analysis, and interpretation at an advanced level are integrated in this course. Students discuss data sources, assessment of dependent and independent variables, measurement error, confounding, and bias. They explore methodological issues in epidemiology, including factors critical to public health research, such as missing data, intermediate variables, confounding, complex study designs, meta-analysis, and questionnaire design. The concepts and applications in survival analysis, analysis of incidence rates, life tables, and parametric and nonparametric approaches are covered in this course. (Prerequisite(s): PUBH 8500.)
