PHST 301 Introduction to Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the sceince of public health. This course is designed to introduce the philosophy, purpose, and basic methods of epidemiology. By applying epidemiologic research methods and analysis, we will identify descriptive patterns of disease in the population. That is, who is affected by disease, and how do patterns of disease vary across time and place? We will also consider systematic, epidemiologic approaches to identify why particluar patterns of disease emerge. That is, how can epidemiologic methods be used to identify the structural, behavioral, and biological determinants of health and disease? If we want to remedy health-related problems and build a healthier, safer world, identifying these patterns and determinants of disease is crucial. Finally, we will consider how epidemiology lays the foundation for applied public health practice, including the investigation of disease outbreaks, allocation of health-related resources, development of best practices in medicine and creation and assessment of policies.
