A guide for teachers in epidemiology, public health and clinical medicine

Fourth Edition

Edited by Jørn Olsen, Naomi Greene, Rodolfo Saracci, and Dimitrios Trichopoulos

  • Provides an introduction to recent experience and access to high-level expert advice.
  • A comprehensive guide for young and inexperienced teachers of epidemiology. It covers general methodology as well of more specialized topics related to diseases and health determinants.
  • Each chapter contains guidelines for how a course in the topic could be structured and how achievements could be evaluated. A list of key references is given for such chapters.
  • All the chapters are written by leading epidemiologists in their field, often with many years of teaching experience at different levels.

New to this Edition:

  • The book has been thoroughly revised. All chapters have been updated concerning content, style and references.
  • Updates to this edition reflect changes in research technologies that students should be aware of, especially in genetics (including epigenetics) and in method development (with particular relevance to causal analyses and causal presentations).
