How are the programmes taught?
Core content in basic and advanced epidemiology and social epidemiology is taught using a variety of classroom-based methods. The understanding of central concepts is developed using lectures, seminars, structured handouts, problem solving exercises and discussions. Students are encouraged to develop a high level of research and presentation skills and will be required to prepare and present critical readings and substantive topics to their peers. Students are also instructed in the preparation of scientific papers.
Methodology courses involve a mixture of lectures and supervised practical work. The latter is often based upon data analysis using networked computers in Cluster Rooms at UCL. Specialist sessions and expert statistical assistance will also be provided.
All students and staff are encouraged to attend and participate in the department's lunchtime seminars and public seminars hosted by the International Centre for Health and Society at UCL.
