EH 530: Environmental and Occupational Epidemiology, Spring 2021 Course

Description 

Environmental and Occupational Epidemiology is a course for students in the Environmental Health Department who have successfully completed EPI 530 and BIOS 500. Students will gain experience reading, evaluating, and interpreting epidemiologic studies on the impact of both workplace and environmental exposures, and thinking through practical considerations. The course aims to strengthen each student’s ability to read epidemiological literature critically. This aim will be realized through in-depth exploration of major study designs including cross-sectional studies, cohort studies, and case-control studies, and through the weekly readings and case studies. The focus of the class is on conceptual issues common in environmental and occupational epidemiology research, the application of epidemiological concepts to environmental health topics, and on the interpretation of findings. Successful completion of the course will also contribute to a richer appreciation of how the environment affects public health.
