About

In the Epidemiology program of the New York Medical College, you will study trends, patterns, and causes related to disease in populations.

Overview

Understanding the Cause, Analyzing the Spread, and Preventing Disease

Epidemiology is the basic science of disease recognition, characterization and prevention.  The application of epidemiologic tools and principles is increasingly important not only to public health but also in clinical practice.  What causes disease?  How is it distributed in the population? What are the determinants of disease and what makes certain individuals more susceptible to disease than others? And what can we do to protect more people and more communities from disease and death? Often called “the cornerstone” of public health, epidemiology studies these questions to understand disease processes and apply that information to develop and evaluate protection and control measures.

  • You will learn to create and interpret complex statistical models to understand risk factors for and solutions to diseases that affect public health.
  • You will be trained to effectively communicate such research and findings to lay and professional audiences.
