    00:00 So what have we learned as a result of this lecture. Well you've learned the origins of epidemiology. You know that it began in England in the early 19th century with a bit of medical detective work by John Snow and since then it's evolved into a host of other realms, including clinical epidemiology and genetic epidemiology and population epidemiology and data science and all these other categories of epidemiology that may be you're interested in now. Now you can distinguish between descriptive and analytical studies, descriptive epidemiology you remember, is when we're describing a scenario, we care about the who, the what, the where and the when. Analytical studies is when we are drawing relationships between two variables.

    00:44 And now you can identify the different types of epidemiologists, the clinical epidemiologist, the population epidemiologist and the public health epidemiologist.
