The best online course I ever came across in my 15 years of career as Epidemiologist. Most concepts behind statistical reasoning and interpretation were explained in simple and elaborate way. I would love to take up more courses on Epidemiology and/or Bio-statistics from Coursera.


Great course! I think an undergraduate course in basic statistics will help anyone ti succeed in this course. Some information is pretty basic but the foundational logic of public data health data analysis is well presented in this lecture. Hands on exercises with statistics programs would further help for students to practice how to calculate probabilities, ratios andincidence rates, conduct various analysis such as t, z, chi square, log rank, confidence intervals etc.

Great Course for aspiring public health physicians
