(3 cr.) This course familiarizes students with the principles and methods of epidemiology and their application to the study of the health of populations--skills becoming increasingly important for health care managers given the advent of Accountable Care Organizations.

Emphasis is placed on using epidemiologic data for planning and managing health care services, including preventive services, developing health policy and measuring the outcomes of health care programs.
