GLOH 503 - Epidemiology
This introductory graduate course presents the principles and methods of epidemiology, including descriptive and analytic approaches to assessing the distributions of health and disease in populations and factors that influence those distributions. The emphasis is on developing an understanding of concepts, rather than quantitative methods, although calculations are involved. The course also provides basic research skill training including literature review strategies; human subject protection strategies; research proposal writing; and report presentation.  Through the combination of lectures, readings, critical review of papers, case studies, and lab on research proposal writing, students without prior coursework in epidemiology will acquire the core competencies in epidemiology research expected of all Master level Global Health graduates.
