Epidemiology is the study of disease occurrence and patterns. This course will cover various aspects of epidemiology as applied to human populations, including types of disease and their natural histories, ways of measuring disease occurrence and frequency, ways of studying disease rates and causes, and social disparities in disease burdens. Epidemiology is a foundational area for almost all public health-related work. Understanding how to read, interpret, and conduct epidemiological research will be essential tools for PAMA students looking to pursue careers in public health fields.
