This course is an introductory laboratory course accompanying the Epidemiology lecture course, designed to focus on the basic science of disease prevention. A major role in public health, epidemiology influences administrative decision-making and healthcare policy. Laboratory exercises in basic principles and methodology of epidemiology will allow students to explore how epidemiology is concerned with the distribution and determinants of health and diseases, morbidity, injuries, disability, and mortality in populations. Laboratory activities should encourage critical thinking, the understanding of scientific methodology, and the application of scientific principles.
