Degree Programs in Epidemiology



The graduate training programs in epidemiology offered by the CCEB/DBE are geared toward medical professionals interested in pursuing careers in clinical research. The student body is primarily comprised of medical students, residents, and especially fellows. The pace of each graduate training program is quite rapid, as advantage is taken of the trainees' previous experience, maturity, and independence. The objectives of these clinical research training programs are to produce a cadre of skilled investigators trained to conduct formal epidemiologic studies and prepared for academic research careers as well as produce national leaders in academic medical and health services research.
