Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Public Health

 

Epidemiology is the study of disease patterns and causes in a population.

Biostatistics is a branch of statistics that applies statistical methods to biological and health research.

Public health practice involves efforts to improve the health of individuals and populations through research, teaching, policy development, and provision of public health services.

The Division of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Public Health Practice integrates these three core disciplines associated with public and population health.

This multidisciplinary Division is one of the pillars of the School of Population and Public Health and shares the School’s vision, goals and values. Members of the Division include full-time academic researchers and teachers as well as clinical and adjunct faculty.

Our faculty are involved in leading-edge research, knowledge translation, and public health practice, and teach a wide range of courses, from statistics to epidemiological methods to principles of epidemiological thinking. Our members are affiliated with a variety of research centres, institutes, hospitals, and public health agencies in British Columbia, where they conduct their research, provide practical training for our students and residents, or work as clinicians, statisticians, epidemiologists, policy developers, or public health service providers.
