taught by Global Health Epidemiologist Raywat Deonandan, PhD

Epidemiology and biostatistics are at the core of evidence-based medicine, allowing us to draw almost definitive conclusions on the most effective and least damaging interventions available. However, the application of mathematical concepts is challenging for many medical students.

This course covers all essential principles of epidemiology and biostatistics for medical students: understand and calculate incidence, prevalence, and risk factors, and grasp the fundamentals of statistical methods, measures, data and the validity and reliability of tests. With practical exercises and structured explanations, Dr. Deonandan will teach you the skills to analyze, interpret, and communicate complex medical data that will guide clinical and ethical decisions in your healthcare career. He will also touch on types of studies and questions regarding research ethics.

The combination of Video Lessons with interactive quiz questions, downloadable study materials, and a USMLE-style Qbank makes it easy to understand and retain the topics. By the end of this course, you will have gained a routine in statistical calculations and have a solid grasp of epidemiological concepts, preparing you for your exams and to apply this knowledge to your future medical practice.

FAQs

What is epidemiology?

Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution, patterns, and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is fundamental to public health, and its main aim is to identify risk factors for diseases and targets for preventive healthcare.

What is biostatistics?

Biostatistics is the application of statistical methods and principles to biological and medical data. It’s used to summarize, describe, and analyze data to uncover patterns and relationships, aiding in decision-making and predictions. In medicine and public health, biostatistics plays a crucial role in the design of experiments and clinical trials, interpretation of data, and the understanding of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that affect health and disease.

What is descriptive epidemiology?

Descriptive epidemiology describes the frequency and pattern of a disease in a population, examining factors like which ages, genders, races are affected, and time and location of a disease occurrence. This helps to identify patterns and potential causes of a disease.

Incidence vs prevalence in epidemiology

Incidence is the number of new cases of a disease in a specific time frame in a population. It gives information about the risk of developing the disease and the rate at which new cases occur.

Prevalence describes the total number of cases, both new and existing, in a population at a specific point in time or during a specific period.
