The Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology course addresses the epidemiology of the most prevalent cause of death, cardiovascular disease (CVD). This course focuses on the biological basis, incidence, prevalence, morbidity and mortality of CDV, as well as etiologic factors accounting for differences in incidence and mortality. Cardiovascular health is complex with know and unknown benefits and potential risks that result in multiple cardiovascular outcomes considered CVD. Students will learn how to apply epidemiologic methods in studies of CVD etiology and prevention. Students will learn about majority epidemiology studies that have progressed the science of cardiovascular health and perform data analysis using data from internationally recognized cardiovascular datasets. For each major CVD, there will be an overview of the classification, nomenclature and pathophysiology, measure of frequency, associations and risk factors, natural history, treatment and approaches to study design and control.
