Acerca del Curso

Epidemiological research is ubiquitous. Even if you don’t realise it, you come across epidemiological studies and the impact of their findings every single day. You have probably heard that obesity is increasing in high income countries or that malaria is killing millions of people in low income countries. It is common knowledge that smoking causes cancer and that physical activity is protective against heart disease. These facts may seem obvious today, but it took decades of epidemiological research to produce the necessary evidence. In this course, you will learn the fundamental tools of epidemiology which are essential to conduct such studies, starting with the measures used to describe the frequency of a disease or health-related condition. You will also learn how to quantify the strength of an association and discuss the distinction between association and causation. In the second half of the course, you will use this knowledge to describe different strategies for prevention, identify strengths and weaknesses of diagnostic tests and consider when a screening programme is appropriate....

This was a phenomenal learning experience, the hands-on approach made it feel always relevant, the instructor was brilliant and the materials were always suited to my learning expectations.

Quick foundational knowledge in epidemiology; but a strong overlap with basic statistics.

C​ourse is interesting, but content is rather poor. Videos are to short, not enough examples. Quizzes reqire tones of calculations and are not well thought. In many cases rounding up/down of calculated solution is problematic and you need to guess the correct answer. After improving reading content with more examples and changing the way knowledge is tested this will be a great 5/5 course.

The instructor has an accent which made understanding him difficult. I had to look at the transcript instead of the videos.

The videos were basic but did not provide sufficient information on how calculations should be made. For example, in week 2, the sleeping students were used (which is a silly example) and it was not clearly shown who the unexposed is because both denominators are the same (n=10).

If this is a part of the Master program, I will surely not sign up with Imperial College. There are no real-life examples and the sleeping students illustration is even lower than for the undergrads.

course with little explanation and where students are unable to do the proposed activities. Unfortunately, this course does not add anything to my career and I would like to remove it from my list of courses. Too bad

Lecturer cannot articulate very well in English and enough examples were not given for the different ratios.
