Traditional epidemiology coursework is centered on the design and analysis of disease control. This important knowledge forms the backbone of what epidemiology is, but it can sometimes become a rote exercise in calculations rather than what it can and should be-training in thinking like an epidemiologist. EXERCISES IN EPIDEMIOLOGY enriches the core epidemiology coursework with a set of living, breathing problems from the real-world epidemiology literature. Comprising nearly 200 questions and answers drawn from published studies, this one-of-a-kind text allows students in epidemiology and public health to cultivate their skills in a real-world context while familiarizing themselves with core epidemiologic principles: rates and proportions, causal inference, and confounding. Answers to every question, along with each step in the reasoning that supports them, are included so that students can compare notes with a senior epidemiologist. With its practical, analytically sophisticated approach to this vital subject matter, EXERCISES IN EPIDEMIOLOGY prepares readers to make the transition from student to professional like no other text.
