Что я буду изучать?

The MPH in Epidemiology provides a solid base in epidemiological methods, an understanding of the breadth of public health and opportunities for applied experiential learning in epidemiologic practice, research and policy.

Full time students will complete the program over 4 to 5 consecutive terms of study (including summer). The program requires mandatory and elective courses, and a required practicum placement (completed after at least two terms of course-work).

The curriculum emphasizes quantitative methods, critical appraisal of evidence, data analysis and interpretation. In contrast to strictly skills-based training, the degree is aimed at developing leaders who will make independent contributions when faced with public health challenges, and direct initiatives in the field. Licensed Physicians completing their Residency in Public Health and Preventative Medicine (PHPM) are often encouraged to also complete the MPH in Epidemiology in order to acquire to full standard of training.

Program Goals

The objective of the program is to provide students with a base of knowledge and skills in epidemiological methods and public health.

Graduates will:

  • be able to work as part of a research group or in public health practice;
  • be able to describe trends and patterns of disease incidence and prevalence, disease burden, factors affecting health status, and major etiologic and prognostic factors;
  • understand the strengths and weaknesses of major methodological and analytical techniques;
  • exhibit practical skills, including the ability to develop an epidemiological question, refine the question in light of the literature and community situation, design an appropriate study to answer the question, collect relevant data, analyze these data using commonly available statistical software, and interpret the findings relative to the literature and the community/ organizational context;
  • be able to prepare a paper for peer-reviewed publication, and present epidemiological information;
  • have knowledge of public health principles to practice; and
  • be able to read, critically appraise, and interpret the scientific literature, and discuss the effectiveness of core public health interventions.

Career Opportunities

The program prepares all students to pursue their choice of career in research and/or in applied public health. Many of our graduates have been accepted into PhD programs in Epidemiology and related fields in Canada and internationally. Many of our alumni hold positions as epidemiologists, data analysts and managers in public health units and government departments. We have alumni who are senior managers of research in medical and public health research institutes, and also alumni who work in the private and not-for-profit sectors.

Some of our graduates each year enter health professional training such as medicine and nursing and many of those have combined their clinical and public health training to become senior leaders in population health or clinician scientists.
