This programme provides an exceptional opportunity to gain world-class epidemiological training for professionals in academic departments, research units, or in the health services.

Epidemiology is the key discipline underlying medical research, public health practice and health care evaluation. The understanding of its principles and practice is crucial for those involved in the design or assessment of epidemiological studies and programme evaluation. Epidemiological methods are also used to describe the size and nature of health problems, to investigate the aetiology of specific diseases, and to evaluate the impact of interventions for treating and preventing ill health.

This course is suitable for those aiming for a career in epidemiology research, academics in other health areas and other health professionals, as well as people who require an understanding of epidemiology, such as medical journalists and scientific officers in government and industry.

Distance learning with LSHTM provides a flexible and supported environment where students excel – from wherever they are in the world.
