À propos du cours

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.

Good overview on basic epidemiological statistics that are also taught in med school - very comprehensible recap for me, thanks!

I love the course. However, I wish that instructor had a bit more clarity of materials when providing information!

siento que le faltaria deporto unos talleres de práctica pero por lo demás me pareció muy concreto y practico!

I had quite high expectations from this cours and ICL. The course is a basic introduction to epidemiology, good for understanding basic concepts. If offered in the future, I hope the organisers will improve on the following: (1) focus more on interpretation of various frequency and measures of association. I believe this was not stressed enough and it is paramount. More practical examples in the lectures. Ensure the quizzes have the correct solution in the quiz feedback, sometimes it is not present. On week 4, the last quiz, question 17 does not correctly record the correct answer. Also, in terms of terminology, I found it limiting to speak only in terms of "disease", as opposed to "outcome", since epidemiology doesn't only deals with disease, but rather outcomes of interest which can also be positive (i.e. survival, etc)

I enjoyed the course content. I found the questions challenging and would like to see more sample questions to practice prior to the unit quiz. I found some of the questions in the quiz for each chapter were not clearly demonstrated in the video and were very challenging to understand. A work book for practice include steps on how to get to the answers if not achievable by the student.

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

Very important, and whit context in public health

Course 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.
