The mission of this concentration is to prepare public health professionals with the analytical, research, and statistical skills necessary to benchmark and evaluate health improvement initiatives in community and health care settings. Increasingly, the health field is challenged to adopt an evidence-based approach to preventing and treating disease and disability. The concentration in Epidemiology & Biostatistics will play a critical role in meeting this challenge. There is a special emphasis on integrating cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit concepts into the curriculum so that resource allocation issues are considered.
