EPIDEMIOLOGY

There is a paradigm shift in healthcare services, i.e., from pay-for-volume to pay-for-value, and outcome research has become part of policy decision. The content of this course is mainly epidemiology, which begins with how scientific knowledge progresses through conjectures and refutations, followed by causal inference, basic principles of measurement, epidemiologic measurements (incidence and prevalence rates), outcome measurements (life expectancy (LE), loss-of-LE, costs, functional disability, etc.), and study design, control of confounding, cohort study, case-control study, and integration of both disciplines into health policy decision.

Course Goal
A. To train public health professionals in order for having passion and expertise on public health theory and practice
