Students are introduced to the history of public health and epidemiology. They explore descriptive and analytical epidemiology, and contemporary approaches to public health including cross sectional, cohort, case control and intervention methods. Students use public health data to justify and plan a 'New public health' project to address a need in their local community. An appraisal of the public health dimensions of health management practice concludes this subject.
