NRSG 811 Principles of Clinical Epidemiology
Principles of Clinical Epidemiology introduces the basic concepts of epidemiology with meaningful clinical and translational applications to healthcare. This course is designed to equip graduate students to make informed high-quality evidence-based decisions in clinical care and to develop answerable research questions regarding structural, social, and health conditions impacting the population. Students will be able to efficiently and effectively search the literature for high quality evidence and make responsible clinical decisions when there is weak evidence to balance clinical knowledge, experience, and research. This course will introduce epidemiological concepts and definitions by beginning with a historical overview of epidemics to public health surveillance of interventions for pandemics.
