We are in the process of changing the names of several of our methods courses. We were prompted to begin this by CEPH, our accrediting body, during our March site visit, who indicated our current course names were not always indicative of course content.
Here is the complete list of methods courses from undergraduate through doctoral level with current titles.
EPID 410 Principles of Epidemiology
EPID 700 Introduction to Epidemiology
EPID 701 Concepts and Methods in Epidemiology
EPID 741 Epidemiologic Methods Intermediate Epidemiologic Methods (submitted in a separate CCP)
EPID 800 Epidemiologic Methods II Advanced Methodological Theory in Epidemiology
EPID 801 Advanced Analytic Methods in Epidemiology
EPID 802 Epidemiologic Methods III Grant Writing for Epidemiology (submitted in a separate CCP)
We propose to change EPID 800 to Advanced Methodological Theory in Epidemiology. Given the content course as indicated by the course description, we believe changing the title provides a much better description of the content taught in the course. We are delineated the course from 801 by using the word "methodological" rather than "analytical".
The course description provides a better description of actual course content.
