Epidemiologists describe trends and risks for health and provide the base data for preventive approaches in public health. Through surveillance, screening, data and intervention programs, epidemiologists are needed to determine disease risk factors and evaluate the effectiveness of prevention and treatment of diseases.
In the Colorado School of Public Health’s Master of Public Health program in Epidemiology, you’ll be trained in epidemiologic study designs, statistical analysis and the biological principles underlying human diseases. Epidemiology students utilize their training to implement epidemiologic surveillance and research studies, providing evidence-based information to promote health and prevent disease and injuries.
With an MPH in epidemiology, you can work in a wide variety of settings, including international health agencies, state and local health departments, federal government agencies, academia, and numerous research institutions. The epidemiology concentration also provides physician training for the Preventive Medicine Residency Program.
If you’re interested in being a part of the cornerstone of public health, epidemiology is the profession for you.
