Description: This core graduate course in the public health curriculum considers the meaning, scope, and applications of epidemiology to the practice of public health. This course will provide you with an understanding of the basic methods and tools used by epidemiologists to study population health. Rather than a course for graduates who would work as an epidemiologist, this course focuses on your ability to understand the language of epidemiology and the basic concepts, be able to interpret epidemiologic findings critically and communicate them to colleagues who are not public health specialists, and to be able to navigate data sources. Letter grade only.
