Orientation Evening in Shaw Auditorium

Modern epidemiology and biostatistics are research methodology for studying practical issues in clinical medicine and public health in human populations. As such, epidemiology and biostatistics have been gaining increasing worldwide prominence as cutting-edge disciplines of medical research. This is partly because modern medicine requires that all clinical and non-clinical health professionals base their practice and decisions on current best evidence. The epidemiology and biostatistics courses offered in this programme provide requisite knowledge and quantitative skills for conducting rigorous scientific research (including clinical trials, case-control and cohort studies, and systematic reviews), for interpreting results from such studies, and for practicing evidence-based medicine.
