12 courses found which satisfy the condition "Epidemiology".
This course will provide an introduction to cancer epidemiology,highlighting current statistics(in incidence,mortality,and survival) and cancer risk factors(including host and environmental factors).Strategies for cancer prevention and control in the general populaton and within disproportionatly affected populations will also be presented.
This course teaches the principles and practice of clinical epidemiology, drawing on real problems faced by medical professionals and elaborating on existing examples of clinical research. Medical researchers will lean how to translate real clinical problems into tangible research questions for investigation, gaining insight into some of the most important considerations when designing an epidemiological study along the way.
Core concepts will be introduced along four key themes: diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and etiology. Followers of this course will develop their understanding of the topics addressed through lectures from experts, peer interaction and review assignments.
This course focus on methods to study relations between exposure to environmental
agents (for example air pollutants and metals) or conditions (heat waves) and effect markers,
symptoms, morbidity and mortality in population and subgroups. It also describes how to use the
information from epidemiological and toxicological studies in risk assessment and environmental
health impact assessment.
Epidemiology of Aging
This course will review and discuss about health changes in late life, covering a broad range of
topics, including social and biological models of aging; disability, cognitive decline and
dementia; quality of life; and health care issues.
Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease
he goal of this course is to provide an overview of the major topics and issues in cardiovascular disease epidemiology including: 1) summarization of relevant pathophysiology, 2) epidemiology of CVD (incidence,prevalence, mortality and morbidity) overall and in special populations, 3) major and putative risk factors for CVD including genetic, social and economic determinants, 4) methodologic issues in CVD research including surveillance and measures of CVD endpoints and relevant exposures, 5) major population-based studies of CVD in the US and globally, 6) primary and secondary CVD prevention, target groups for prevention, and community-based intervention studies, 7) treatment of CVD and major CVD trials, 8) CVD-related research occurring within the Department of Epidemiology.
Epidemiology Research Method
The course is designed to apply the principles and methods learned in introductory
epidemiology, epidemiologic methods, and biostatistics courses to the design of epidemiologic studies.This course will focus on epidemiologic methods - primarily methods used in observational studies, cohort studies, case-control studies and randomized controlled trials.
Infectious Disease Epidemiology
Introduces the basic methods for infectious disease epidemiology and case studies of important disease syndromes and entities. Methods include definitions and nomenclature, outbreak investigations, disease surveillance, case-control studies, cohort studies, laboratory diagnosis, molecular epidemiology, dynamics of transmission, and assessment of vaccine field effectiveness. Case-studies focus on acute respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, hepatitis, HIV, tuberculosis, sexually transmitted diseases, malaria, and other vector-borne diseases.
This course is intended for graduate-level epidemiology students. The course covers both the major theoretical concepts and practical issues involved in conducting research that involves biomarkers in human populations from an epidemiology perspective.
Recent advances in basic science and biotechnology are revolutionizing the field of
epidemiology, creating vast opportunities for studying the relationship between variations at the
molecular or cellular level and early detection, etiology, or prognosis of health related states.
Environment and Health
Examines health issues, scientific understanding of causes, and possible future approaches to control of the major environmental health problems in industrialized and developing countries. Topics include how the body reacts to environmental pollutants; physical, chemical, and biological agents of environmental contamination; vectors for dissemination (air, water, soil); solid and hazardous waste; susceptible populations; biomarkers and risk analysis; the scientific basis for policy decisions; and emerging global environmental health problems.
A science dealing with the collection,analysis,interpretation,and presentation of numerical data
The basic concepts, theories and essential methods of the course are an important part of students’ scientific accomplishment and play an important role in improving talented people's scientific quality, which cannot be substituted by other courses.This course enables students to grasp the elementary knowledge of mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, wave and optics and modern physics. It provides a basis for the work they will do after graduation in the fields of technology, management and scientific research.
Advanced Mathematics is designed to serve students majoring in chemical science, computer science and engineering etc. It consists of two parts of a two-semester sequence. The course begins with a rapid review of topics in algebra and trigonometry, which you should be competent in. Part 1, consisting of Chapters 1 to 7, is devoted to single variable differentiation, integration and differential equations. It covers the fundamental concepts and theorems. Part 2, consisting of Chapters 8 to 12, discusses in depth multivariable differentiation, integration, infinite series, vectors and the geometry of space.
