After completing this specialisation, students will be able to design epidemiological studies and appraise epidemiological literature. Students will also develop a broad understanding and sound practical skills in biostatistics that will enable them to analyse and appropriately interpret epidemiological data.

Depending on which electives are taken, students will develop skills in reporting the results of epidemiological studies, performing systematic reviews of epidemiological literature, including meta-analysis, and in specialised areas such as genetic epidemiology and the epidemiology of infectious diseases.
