Epidemiology - MPH

The Public Health Program's Epidemiology Track offers both a traditional two-year program, as well as a one-year accelerated track for dual-degree and clinical students. This track provides MPH students with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to succeed in careers in federal, state, and local government; hospitals and healthcare systems; and nonprofit or non-governmental organizations.

The mission of the Epidemiology track in the MPH program at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston is to train our students to be leaders in contributing to the protection and promotion of health in human populations. After completing the coursework, students are able to:

  1. Evaluate basic epidemiologic measures of disease occurrence and association
  2. Apply the descriptive epidemiology of health risk factors and health-related outcomes by person, place, and time
  3. Identify data sources and analyze and interpret data for public health research, policy, or practice
  4. Evaluate epidemiologic research hypotheses, study designs, and results
  5. Identify and explain sources of bias and confounding in epidemiologic research
