The course considers in some depth the epidemiologic study designs: cohort, case-control, cross-sectional, ecological. Goals are that students will be able to: 1) design epidemiologic studies; 2) understand causal inference and potential sources of bias in observational studies; 3) recognize and address confounding and effect modification in data; and 4) critically read epidemiologic papers.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
