Program Philosophy

The Doctor of Philosophy program in Clinical Epidemiology will prepare students to integrate clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, clinical economics, and clinical research with patient care. The Program will focus on a critical evaluation of diagnostics, prevention and management, which are the basic principles of evidence-based medicine. It will provide students with a broad perspective and advanced skills for in-depth exploration of research methodology. Students will be challenged to create innovative research and evaluation methods, which will lead to not only an improved understanding of health and disease, but ultimately toward an overall contribution to  enhanced health service systems as well.

Program Objectives

a.     Appropriately teach, advise and disseminate the principles of Clinical Epidemiology while assiduously aspiring to help in the reduction of the world disease burden.

b.    Encourage and effectively integrate Clinical Epidemiology and Evidence-Based Medicine into the everyday practice of individual patient care as well as the broader based health care systems.
