Environmental Epidemiology is an advanced epidemiology course that addresses epidemiological research methods used to study environmental exposures from air pollution to heavy metals, and from industrial pollutants to consumer product chemicals. The course will provide an overview of major study designs in environmental epidemiology, including cohort studies, panel studies, natural experiments, randomized controlled trials, time-series, and case-crossover studies. The course will discuss disease outcomes related to environmental exposures, including cancer and diseases of cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, and nervous systems. Case studies in environmental epidemiology will be discussed to provide details of research methods and findings.
