By applying the concepts learned in this course to current public health problems and issues, students will understand the practice of epidemiology as it relates to real life and makes for a better appreciation of public health programs and policies. This course explores public health issues like cardiovascular and infectious diseases – both locally and globally – through the lens of epidemiology.

TOP REVIEWS FROM EPIDEMIOLOGY: THE BASIC SCIENCE OF PUBLIC HEALTH
One of the best classes I've taken. It was difficult for me. I had to take the quizzes many times usually to get an A. Worth the effort. I completed the class. I'm proud of the accomplishment.
I have needed such a class to be challenged in my career as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist. It has add to being up to date on research epidemiology and interpretation.
Thank you so much!
Absolutely tremendous course for those interested in research! This course helps to make one familiar with the scientific terms which we came across regularly in medical literature. Great Job!
A very interesting course. An eye opener to what epidemiology entails. I like the course instructors, they made it simple, even though the test are tough. Its interesting from beginning to the end.
