PH 210 Epidemiology of Health and Healthcare

This course introduces the basic principles of epidemiology, including formulation of the research question, choice of study subjects, measures of disease frequency, assessment of exposure and disease status, study design (cross-sectional studies, prospective and retrospective cohort studies, case-control studies, and clinical trials), measures of association between exposure and disease (risk ratio and risk difference measures) and causal inference. Taught as lectures and assigned exercises, this course stresses the practical applications of epidemiological techniques.
