- Courses by Program
This course is the second in a three course sequence designed for the MPH in Epidemiology and MPH in Biostatistics majors. Students will develop skills in recognizing strengths and weaknesses of various epidemiologic study designs; describing sources of bias that can distort measures of effect/association; and designing case-control studies, cohort studies, and randomized clinical trials. The class will also explore additional study designs used less frequently, such as nested case-control studies and case-crossover studies. Students will gain experience in recognizing and evaluating the role of confounding in data derived from epidemiologic studies. Additional tutorial sessions, to be scheduled at a time convenient for the students, will include problem-solving exercises focused on study design and analysis. Written homework assignments and problem-oriented learning will occupy a central role in facilitating mastery of epidemiologic methods and issues.
