The primary goal of the seminar is to provide an intensive introduction to the epidemiology and prevention of major cardiovascular diseases for qualified health professionals planning careers in research, teaching or practice in this area. A select faculty of epidemiologists and biostatisticians and prevention researchers will present discussions, lectures and laboratory and tutorial sessions illustrating basic principles of cardiovascular disease epidemiology and prevention and their applications. There will be extensive group participation.
At the conclusion of the program, healthcare professionals, researchers and public health practitioners should be able to:
- Incorporate into research, teaching and/or practice an increased understanding of the nature of cardiovascular diseases, especially coronary heart disease and stroke, and epidemiologic approaches to the investigation of these diseases.
- Improve research productivity by applying the major epidemiologic approaches to the investigation of current research questions through collaborative, multidisciplinary development of research proposals.
- Improve grant writing, publications, teaching and practice related to cardiovascular disease epidemiology and prevention by acting on enhanced ability to critically evaluate epidemiologic evidence.
- Become more active in relevant cardiovascular health policy advocacy by acting on improved ability to recognize and evaluate the epidemiologic basis for policy and practice in cardiovascular disease prevention.
