Description:
Clinical Epidemiology and Population Health (CEPH) combines teaching of core skills of clinical epidemiology (including biostatistics, study design, and critical reading) as they apply to the care of individuals and populations with an introduction to key public and population health topics. The overall goal is to allow students to emerge with an appreciation of the problems of individual patients and those of populations as a continuum; and to understand that improving health may involve interventions in populations by physicians, public health authorities, and others responsible for specific populations as well as medical care for individuals. The course is designed to complement the Ethics, Social Medicine, and Health Policy courses, as well as the basic biomedical sciences and the Patient-Doctor sequence. The course is designed and led by the HMS Center for Population Health Education.
Evaluation:
