Epidemiology Research Project

    Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of disease frequency in human populations and the applications of this study to control health problems. The term epidemiology is derived from the Greek words epi, which means “on or upon”; demos, which means “the common people”; and logy, which means “study”. Putting these pieces together yields the following definition of epidemiology: “the study of that which falls upon the common people.” 

    We fight against any health-related events, including infectious disease, non-infectious disease, injuries, disabilities, natural disasters, and death by applying our mathematical tools and disease knowledge. As an essential part of public health, epidemiologists play a significant role in shaping policy decisions and practices by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare. 

    This course will teach how the epidemiologists recognize the extent of disease in a population, identify the risk factor or the causes of disease, and evaluate the effectiveness of measures that prevent and treat disease. In addition, you will learn how to do an epidemiology research project step by step with our most advanced program system.

  1. articulate the conceptual basis of public health and epidemiology
  2. recognize the basic epidemiology research tools
  3. develop a project topic and build a logical project plan
  4. perform basic data analysis skills
  5. be familiar with the dissemination of the project result.
