Fall 1 2009

M. Hernan
2.5 credits
Lectures, labs. Two 2-hour sessions each week, one 2-hour lab each week.

EPI201 introduces the principles and methods used in epidemiologic research. The course discusses the conceptual and practical issues encountered in the design and analysis of epidemiologic studies for description and causal inference. The final exam requires the application of the learned skills to a real problem in epidemiology. EPI201 is the first course in the series of methods courses designed for students majoring in Epidemiology or Biostatistics, and those interested in a detailed introduction to the design and conduct of epidemiologic studies. Students who take EPI201 are expected to take EPI202 (Methods II).

Course Note: Thursday or Friday lab required. Credit is not given for more than one of EPI 200, EPI 201, EPI 208, or EPI500; ordinal grading option only; no auditors.
