# Epidemiology

I. Course Description

This course will provide the student with an introduction to epidemiologic
approaches to disease prevention and control, and factors influencing health
status. Measurement and examination of morbidity, mortality rates and ratios will
be emphasized. Descriptive epidemiology will be focused upon primarily in this
course. We will briefly examine analytical epidemiology and its importance in the
field of public health.

II. Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Define epidemiology and how it is used as a tool to assess the health
status of populations.

2. Describe the difference between "health" and the “absence of disease".

3. Describe the composition of a rate, in terms of numerator and denominator and the
relationship between them.

4. Describe the natural of history of disease.

5. Describe the levels of prevention and the appropriate application of each
level.

6. Distinguish the difference between epidemic, endemic and pandemic
disease.

7. Define multiple causation of disease and state the interrelationship of
host, agent, and environment.

8. Describe the difference between a rate, ratio, and proportion.

9. Define and calculate incidence and prevalence rates and the utility of
each type of rate.

10. Define and calculate crude, specific, and adjusted rates.

11. Describe sources of date on community health and the advantages and
limitations of each source.

12. Understand the utility of descriptive and analytic epidemiology. State the
differences between observational and experimental studies. Describe
case control and cohort studies; retrospective and prospective studies
