Design and conduct studies in order to find determinants of health and disease.
Epidemiology is absolutely fundamental for maintaining and improving public health. It is a fascinating field that utilises statistics, tracking methods and problem solving to study the origin and causes of diseases, and the effect of clinical interventions in a community.
