Epidemiology and Biostatistics

Mission & Objectives


Epidemiology and biostatistics involve the theory and application of epidemiological and statistical science to understand determinants of disease, to prevent and control disease, to analyse biomedical problems and to further develop public health research. Epidemiology and biostatistics can be applied to a wide range of public health topics, chronic conditions, mental health problems, and social behaviours. Students can apply their training to describe the frequency and cause of disease in a population, to analyse and evaluate risk factors for a condition and examine health data for trends and to determine the effectiveness of interventions. The programme is geared towards training biomedical and sociomedical researchers and data analysts for public health agencies. Many of our graduates continue to doctoral studies or work in government agencies.




Compulsory Courses (10 units)


BIOS5002 Linear Models (2 units)
BIOS5003 Categorical Survival Data Analysis (3 units)
EPID5002 Epidemiological Study Designs (2 units)
EPID5003 Analysis of Epidemiology Data (3 units)
