DN713 Epidemiology and Social Determinants of Population Health

This course centers on understanding, integrating, and applying emerging scientific knowledge specific to clinical prevention and population health. Participants will amalgamate trends within epidemiologic, biostatistical, and environmental data to formulate solutions for persistent or novel healthcare challenges, drawing insights from existing health data sets and the scientific literature. The consideration of social determinants of health will be integral to processes such as risk assessment, intervention development and implementation, healthcare delivery planning, and evaluation. Evaluation of models for clinical prevention and population health care delivery will also be part of the curriculum. Successful completion of this course entails dedicating 20 supervised practice hours specifically focused on population health.
