Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
The objective of this course is to expose students to research methods, both quantitative and qualitative, often applied to epidemiologic, public health, and health policy and management questions. Students learn to review scientific and conceptual literature critically to identify gaps or weaknesses in the literature, develop research objectives and/or testable hypotheses, and to apply appropriate methods for sampling, data collection and measurement, and analysis. Students also learn to write a research proposal appropriate for funding. Finally, students experience peer review as a means of expression and gain practice absorbing input to improve research projects. Elizabeth Bradley.
