About

The Public Health - Epidemiology program at Florida International University equips students with strong analytic and quantitative skills to be successful in designing and conducting public health investigations, disease surveillance, innovative interventions and methodological research.

Overview

Epidemiology is a science rooted in finding solutions to serious public health problems like cardiovascular disease and cancer. 

Data concerning determinants and distribution are critical to improving the health of entire populations. In other words, epidemiologists identify why some people get sick and others do not. 

Students in the Department of Epidemiology acquire the skills to detect, prevent and control human disease and to promote the health and well-being of the public through innovative research, education and training.

Many of Public Health - Epidemiology graduates from Florida International University are working as epidemiologists for federal and state agencies, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and international health organizations.
