Master of Science Course in Epidemiology and Biostatistics


Fees Detail


DESCRIPTION

WHY STUDY? The science of epidemiology underpins public health policy, dental science and health services research, and employs a large number of researchers around the world. As practitioners in the field of epidemiology and biostatistics, we have become increasingly aware of the need for a greater number of members of the research community to possess excellence in biostatistical analysis, especially for the analysis of observational data. This has led us to plan, develop and deliver a new Master's Programme in Epidemiology & Biostatistics. What is Epidemiology? Epidemiology is the science that looks at the most important areas of medicine, public health, clinical research, drug trials, and health services improvement. Postgraduates from this course will have a wide range of career options, and are in demand in universities, government, national health services, non-government organisations and industry. What is Biostatistics? Biostatistics is the science of collecting, analysing, presenting and drawing inferences from data for research in medicine and health. Context is vitally important as methods developed in one area of statistics can be misleading when unthinkingly applied elsewhere. For example, basic regression assumes independence whereas data on patients is rarely independent as they share common treatment pathways within e.g. hospitals. Postgraduates from this course will learn a wide range of contemporary statistical methods and, most importantly, when and where they should be applied. Key facts
