Programme Curriculum

Epidemiology and biostatistics have been gaining increasing worldwide prominence as cutting-edge disciplines of medical research. Today, both clinical and non-clinical health professionals need to provide evidence-based decisions for patient care, public health interventions and public health policies. The courses aim to provide comprehensive training in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical and non-clinical health research and to interpret and use findings from such studies for patient care and policy making. Since there is emphasis on clinical epidemiology and interpretation of epidemiological research results, the courses are also particularly popular for those who wish to master critical appraisal skills for evidence-based medicine.
