This is an elective course for epidemiology track masters students. Doctoral students are required to register for at least two terms (one credit each) during the first two years of their program. This course is intended to extend students’ understanding of the field of epidemiology and public health research, and their ability to explore and critique research methods with an emphasis on very current epidemiologic peer-reviewed papers. In weekly sessions, the instructor, guest faculty, and students, will prepare one peer-reviewed article for class discussion that demonstrates or involves innovative public health content or methods. A secondary goal of this class is to prepare students to perform peer-review themselves (e.g., for journals, study sections) using examples of this work from faculty.
Grade mode: Pass / No Pass.
