Epidemiology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study of how diseases are transmitted in a specific population, with the ultimate goal of utilizing the obtained data to plan and execute successful public health interventions. To understand the data generated by studies, epidemiology uses the science of biostatistics, which is the branch of statistics that focuses on the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data derived from living organisms (human beings in this case).
In this course, the student will be introduced to the history of epidemiology and its terminology and will be given an overview of the different types of study designs.
For optimal understanding, the student is required to be familiar with the basics of arithmetic and algebra. Moreover, an open mind and patience are highly encouraged, as some concepts require a certain level of abstraction, whereas others may have to be rewatched to better grasp the topic.
