The goal of this Program is to promote the application of the epidemiologic principles and population medicine to clinical practice. Our activities include courses in epidemiology and evidence-based medicine for all levels of practitioners at the medical school. We also provide training in the teaching of evidence-based medicine and in the advanced skills required for clinical and administrative leadership positions in clinical and academic medicine.
An integrated program in epidemiology and evidence-based medicine is distributed throughout the four years of the medical school curriculum. This program is designed to train medical school graduates to become life-long educated consumers of the clinical research literature so that they are well-positioned to appropriately apply new research information to clinical practice.
