Epidemiology is the core science that underpins both public health and evidence-based clinical practice.  Epidemiologic research targets factors that influence the development, course and outcomes of health conditions.  Included among these factors are health services and systems.

Our faculty members are responsible for an undergraduate course, CH&E 4010.03 Introduction to Epidemiology and Research Methods.   This course is situated in the Faculties of Science/Medicine, as part of the BSc Medical Sciences Program.  Our faculty members are also engaged in tutoring, teaching and leadership within the medical school (please see the Faculty of Medicine calendar for more information).
