College of Pharmacy, Downers Grove Campus
Credits 2.0
Epidemiologic methods are increasingly used for questions not easily found answered through traditional clinical research pathways (e.g., randomized trials). Given health care's emphasis on evidence-based practice and population-based care, a firm understanding of epidemiologic principles is necessary for health care professionals. This course will introduce students to the population-oriented approach of epidemiology and its application to examining the use and effects of medications, as well as practice evaluation.
