Epidemiology is a key discipline for understanding and improving global health. Epidemiological methods underpin clinical medical research, public health practice and health care evaluation, investigation of the causes of disease, and evaluation of interventions to prevent or control disease.
By the end of the Epidemiology programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, students should be able to:
- demonstrate advanced knowledge and awareness of the role of epidemiology and its contribution to other health-related disciplines
- choose appropriate designs and develop detailed protocols for epidemiological studies
- enter and manage computerised epidemiological data and carry out appropriate statistical analyses
- assess the results of epidemiological studies (their own or other investigators'), including critical appraisal of the study question, study design, methods and conduct, statistical analyses and interpretation
Graduates from this programme enter medical research, academic medicine, public health and community medicine, epidemiological field studies, drug manufacture and with government or NGOs.
