Biostatistics 3110B

Description:  This course covers frequently used multivariable regression models (linear for continuous outcomes and logistic for binary outcomes) in health research. By the end of the course students will (i) understand and critique applications of regression models appearing in the biomedical literature and (ii) carry out their own analyses.

Epidemiology 3200

Description:  An examination of the major research issues in epidemiology studies focusing on principal sources of bias (sampling, measurement, and confounding) and other technical issues (e.g. effect-measure modification) in estimates of exposure-outcome associations. Understanding general and design-specific issues is accomplished through critical appraisal of published papers in selected topic areas.

Epidemiology 3210

Description:  This course will teach the fundamentals of observational study designs (case-control and cohort). The course will be problem-based and taught using published studies as examples. Course assignments and projects will include development and critique of protocols.

Epidemiology 3315

Description:  A survey course covering the descriptive epidemiology (incidence and prevalence) and analytic epidemiology (risk and protective factors) of the infectious and chronic disease that are leading causes of death and disability. Effects of personal characteristics (age, gender), place (developing versus developed countries) and changes in occurrence over time are emphasized.

Epidemiology 3330

Description:  Introduction to the process of systematic reviews and meta-analysis, including formulating a research question, defining inclusion and exclusion criteria for the search, literature search method, data extraction, qualitative and quantitative synthesis of evidence.
