BMTRY 745 Environmental Epidemiology

Description

The field of Environmental Epidemiology encompasses the investigation of environmental factors and how they affect human health. Environmental epidemiologists study health effects in populations resulting from exposure to physical, chemical, and biological agents. This includes the contribution of social, economic, and cultural factors that are related to these exposures. Occupational Epidemiology provides an introduction to clinical and epidemiologic aspects of occupational health and recognition and prevention of occupational diseases and injury. Case study approaches are used to learn about epidemiologic applications to occupational health. This course helps to address some of the 15 learning competencies of the doctoral program in Epidemiology and is intended for advanced epidemiology students to become familiar with applications of epidemiology to environmental and occupational problems.
