Course summary

The overall aim of the programme is to provide course participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to serve as a foundation for a career in population health sciences in academic, practice or other settings. Students will receive basic training in the core research methods used in the related academic disciplines of epidemiology, global health, health data science, infectious diseases, public health, and primary care research, and will then be given the opportunity to further specialise in their chosen area of interest. The course will teach students how to critique and design population health studies, and will give them the opportunity to carry out focused research under close supervision. Ultimately, we expect our postgraduates to contribute to the study and improvement of population health. See the course website for further details.?

Learning Outcomes

All graduates of the programme should be able to: 1. Critically appraise and evaluate the design, analysis and interpretation of population health studies. Identify and synthesise relevant published research literature. Select, devise and develop appropriate study designs and data collection methods for population health research. Select appropriate measures to describe and analyse the health status of populations and variations within populations. 5. Collect, manage and conduct appropriate analyses of data relevant to population health using contemporary research tools. Apply relevant theories to practical settings. 7. Assess risks to population health at a variety of levels. 8. Design and evaluate the impact of interventions on population health. Understand the functioning of organizations and regulatory frameworks relevant to work in population health science. Appreciate the inherent uncertainty of research in population health disciplines and the challenges of working with conflicting viewpoints and complexity.
