This course is offered in two modes: either face to face (on-campus) and fully online.
This core course introduces students to the quantitative methods that are the cornerstone of public health research and evidence-based public health policy and practice. Statistical and epidemiological concepts are taught in parallel to promote integration of knowledge across both disciplines. Students will be introduced to epidemiological principles through case studies, which will be examined for study design, associated weaknesses and strengths and statistical techniques. The statistics component develops skills and understanding of basic statistical analysis methods, with hands-on experience analysing epidemiological data using Stata software. The course is available to internal and external students and assistance will be available through tutorial activities and online help.
If possible, students who are concerned about numeracy or computing skills should consider enrolling in the course as an internal student.
