About the Division
As an integrated component of the Department of Public Health Sciences, the Division of Epidemiology is committed to lifelong inquiry and learning through the conduct of a broad scope of health-related investigations and the teaching of epidemiology as a sequential process of reasoning. Members of the division seek to achieve excellence in our educational endeavors and to extend our research initiatives to challenge the limits of our knowledge and enhance our contribution to disease prevention and health promotion worldwide. Solid methodologic foundations and strong analytic skills are the hallmark of the problem-solving paradigm that we foster, practice, and teach within our division.
