(Medicine and surgery)
University of Bristol evaluation:
Medicine and surgery evaluation:
Epidemiology is the science underpinning public health, clinical research and health care evaluation (a form of health "data science"). The MSc in Epidemiology will enable you to engage with the complex population health challenges facing the UK and the global community in future decades, providing high-quality training in epidemiological methods that are applicable to low-, middle- and high-income settings. The programme is suitable for students from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. The MSc will cover the design and statistical analysis of experimental and observational studies. Much of the teaching will relate to the epidemiology of non-communicable diseases. There will be opportunity to learn about cutting-edge methods in causal inference. Your dissertation, on a research topic of your choice, will be likely based on large-scale studies of national importance, and will take the form of a journal article, an oral and a poster presentation - opening the possibility of submission for publication. The Department of Population Health Sciences is a large and thriving department, with numerous opportunities for PhD study and employment on research projects. We are internationally recognised for our excellence in developing epidemiological methods and applying these to a broad spectrum of population health topics. Our research ranges from discovery science in molecular and genetic epidemiology to innovative clinical trials, policy-influencing activities and robust evidence assessments. Our MSc in Epidemiology is founded on this expertise.
