This is the 6th Concepts of Epidemiology course following on the success of previous short Epidemiology courses between 2005 and 2009.
The course is intended for those who want to lay a sound foundation to their knowledge of epidemiology, particularly as it relates to public health practice, policy and research. It will be most suitable for those in the health professions, such as nurses, doctors, health promoters, health policy makers and health researchers. Social sciences, statistics and health management colleagues may also find the course useful.
It could also be a useful refresher or additional course for those already trained in public health or epidemiology. However, those who have completed Masters level education in Public Health in the past 5 years may find the course too basic.
