This program aims to provide students with the educational opportunities needed to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and methodological skills necessary to participate in health services or epidemiology research teams or in public health practice. The M.Sc. program offers the chance to specialize in one of three streams of study: * Epidemiology and Population Health * Health Services and Policy Research * Clinical Epidemiology Students graduate from the program with an ability to communicate scientifically, describe trends and patterns of disease incidence and prevalence, critically review scientific literature related to community health and epidemiology; apply epidemiologic and analytic methods in the design of research; collect, analyze and interpret health data; conduct a study; and write and defend a thesis. The Ph.D. program trains epidemiologists as independent investigators and leaders in health or health-related agencies where research is an important function.
