The science of epidemiology underpins public health policy, dental science and health services research, and employs a large number of researchers around the world.
As practitioners in the field of epidemiology and biostatistics, we have become increasingly aware of the need for a greater number of members of the research community to possess excellence in biostatistical analysis, especially for the analysis of observational data. This has led us to plan, develop and deliver a new Master's Programme in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. The course aims to train scientists to pursue careers in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health and health-services research.
