This course is designed for students in the epidemiology PhD program who already have a solid grounding in epidemiology. This course is part one of a two course series in advanced methods in epidemiology. This course builds upon the concepts and methods acquired in Principles of Epidemiology (EPID 6210), Intermediate Epidemiology (EPID 6211), and Epidemiologic Design and Analysis (EPID 6226). It provides an integrated overview and specific applied experience in areas not covered in these courses as well as more in-depth coverage of key areas critical to the transition from masters to doctoral level research. Students will gain knowledge in identifying complex methodological problems in epidemiologic research (e.g., missing data, information bias, confounding bias, selection bias, multiple exposures, and multilevel determinants of disease), state implications for etiologic inference, and apply appropriate analytic tool(s) to diagnose and account for the complex methodological problems. Prerequisites: EPID 6226 and BIOS 6210
