EPI 76400 - Epidemiology Methods III


This course exposes students to intermediate methods in epidemiologic research and provides students with an opportunity to consider how these strategies complement and advance the more commonly used strategies. Doctoral and master’s students will apply these concepts and theoretical knowledge to quantitative analyses using different types of epidemiologic data. Emphasis will be placed on developing practical skills relevant to contemporary epidemiologic research. Students will explore individual-level exposure-disease associations using classic study designs and techniques, as well as more recent methods that shift away from identifying individual risk factors for disease causation to the description and analysis of environmental systems that give rise to both exposures and health states. Students will also examine potential mediators of these relations.
