Public Health Epidemiology
An applied approach grounded in population-based data. Focuses on the distributions and determinants of health, disease, disability and mortality. Topics include: characteristics and dynamics of health and disease in human populations, including epidemiological strategies in examining the natural history of disease and the impact of disease on the population; population health assessment, surveillance and emerging social epidemiological models that attend to complex models of causation.
