Degree Description The Ph.D. in Epidemiology is constructed to meet the department’s philosophy of training. There is a substantial contribution from the Biostatistics Department and other departments in the College of Public Health so that the candidate is well-grounded in quantitative and analytical techniques, design and conduct of epidemiologic studies, demographic methods, and the management of large data sets. A course in medical physiology and pathology is required to provide a basic understanding of disease processes. In addition, each student works with an adviser to select courses that ensure substantive knowledge in a specific area which will generate important original research. Several recommended Plans of Study are available for students with the following research interests: chronic diseases, infectious diseases, clinical and health services, molecular and genetic epidemiology, and injury epidemiology. An independent but finite research experience is required aside from the dissertation. Finally, relevant courses elsewhere in the university are encouraged. Learner Objectives The primary goal of the doctoral program in the Department of Epidemiology is to prepare graduates for professional careers as scientists, teachers, and practitioners of epidemiological methods. Career opportunities in epidemiology exist in academic institutions, local, state, and federal health agencies, and commercial enterprises. Graduates with a Ph.D. in Epidemiology will be able to: Master the M.S. degree objectives. Understand and be capable of using advanced statistical analysis methods appropriate for the study design and to control for confounding. Manage data collection and quality control in research data, including the development of a questionnaire. Understand and demonstrate specific risk factors and disease processes in a specialized area. Review literature and conceptualize theoretical models of disease and causation and develop hypotheses building upon prior research. Conduct independent research including design, data collection, analysis, and translation into applied and theoretical constructs. Demonstrate the ability to write a proposal for grant funding. Demonstrate in writing and oral presentation knowledge of epidemiological concepts and methods. Demonstrate in writing and oral presentation the ability to explain research study design and results of student-initiated research and to defend the results and implications. -
