    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Epidemiology is the only way of asking some questions in medicine, one way of asking others (and no way at all to ask many) Epidemiology as the study of distribution and determinants of disease frequency in human populations can and should be considered a basic science in medicine. Indeed, epidemiological principles and methods (including methods of statistical analysis) form the basis of any medical research, from case reports and other descriptive studies to cohort studies and experimental clinical trials.

    Course highlights:

    I learnt that epidemiologists use what they learned to prevent future disease outbreaks from occurring. They make use of vaccinations and antibiotics to stop the occurrence and treat the diseases. The information gained from this course will help to investigate and will improve outbreak detection and timely response to diseases.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Ask questions and participate 2. Take notes that you can understand 3. Attend class 4. Pay attention (turn off cell phone) 5. Come prepared 6. Sit where you can see and hear the instructor 7. Tell instructor if you are having trouble with the way he/she is teaching 8. Get to know the instructor (go to office hours) 9. Read applicable text before class so you know what to expect 10. Eat well and get enough sleep
