92569 Fundamentals of Epidemiology and Population Health

This foundation subject introduces students to epidemiology and its application in public health. The subject involves the study of factors affecting health and illness from a population rather than individual perspective. It further develops concepts introduced in 92574 Introduction to Public Health. Epidemiology underpins much of public health. It provides a framework of methods from which information can be reviewed to help identify and address public health problems. Students explore critical aspects of epidemiology, including:

  • foundation concepts: surveillance, measurements of health and disease, concepts of health and disease
  • study designs and their use: how epidemiological data can be used to plan and develop interventions to prevent disease (e.g. infection outbreak) and promote health
  • the social determinants of health and why these are important in epidemiology.

The Mathematics Study Support Center offers support programs to help students cope with the level of mathematics required in subjects like Fundamentals of Epidemiology and Population Health
