Postgraduate Teaching


The Division provides epidemiology and biostatistics teaching at both introductory and advanced levels. Most of the Division's teaching is through the Master of Public Health (MPH) programme, where the Division convenes the Epidemiology and Biostatistics track.

Courses taught by the Division include:

  • Introduction to Epidemiology
  • Advanced Epidemiology
  • Clinical Epidemiology
  • Seminars in Epidemiology
  • Infectious Diseases Epidemiology (taught in conjunction with the Division of Public Health Medicine)
  • Non-Communicable Diseases Epidemiology (taught in conjunction with the Division of Public Health Medicine)
  • Evidence-Based Health Care (taught in conjunction with the Department of Medicine)
  • Biostatistics I (Introduction to Biostatistics)
  • Biostatistics II (Linear & Logistic Regression Modelling)
  • Biostatistics III (Survival analyses and advanced topics) (taught in conjunction with the Department of Statistical Sciences)
     

Additional teaching takes place on a range of short-courses and special seminars throughout the Faculty. This additional teaching typically focuses on either general research methods (study design, measurement, causal inference, etc) and/or specific advanced topics. Recent topics for short-courses and seminars include:

  • mathematical modelling of infectious diseases
  • structural equation modelling
  • missing data and imputation
  • modelling for causal inference
     

In addition, the Division offers PhDs in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. While the PhD programme is by dissertation-only, most of our PhD students enter through the MPH, and/or participate in short-courses and seminars programme.
