It is an exciting time to be an epidemiologist. The work we do is fundamental to the practice of evidence-based public health and medicine and affects the lives of millions of people worldwide. Whether it is investigating an infectious disease outbreak, assessing the impact of in-utero exposure to environmental pollutants and endocrine disrupting chemicals, or the relations of nutritional, genetic, stress-related factors to cardiometabolic health, epidemiology is the foundational discipline underpinning many public health stories in the headlines every day.
We provide an outstanding academic environment that is both nurturing and inclusive for students and fellows. Our goal is to prepare students to improve human health on a large scale—that is why we place so much emphasis on research. The small size of our programs allow graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to work closely with faculty on research and with each other.
