Principles of Veterinary Epidemiology
This single semester course (118.785) will provide in-depth study of the following epidemiological methods: study type, measurement bias, confounding and selection bias.
Throughout the course participants will be encouraged to apply their skills to make evidence based decisions either in a clinical or policy setting. When this course is combined with 118.786 Applied Veterinary Epidemiology participants will have the necessary skills to design population studies to determine the magnitude and impact of a health problem or identify potential risk factors for a particular problem. (Successful completion of 118.785 is required prior to enrolment in 118.786.)
