EPI 238: Genes and Environment in Disease Causation: Implications for Medicine and Public Health (HUMBIO 159)

(Formerly HRP 238) The historical, contemporary, and future research and practice among genetics, epidemiology, clinical medicine, and public health as a source of insight for medicine and public health. Genetic and environmental contributions to multifactorial diseases; multidisciplinary approach to enhancing detection and diagnosis. The impact of the Human Genome Project on analysis of cardiovascular and neurological diseases, and cancer. Ethical and social issues in the use of genetic information. This course must be taken for a minimum of 3 units and a letter grade to be eligible for Ways credit. Prerequisites:Human Biology core or Biology Foundations or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 2-3

EPI 239: Applications of Causal Inference Methods (EDUC 260A, STATS 209B)

See http://rogosateaching.com/stat209/. Application of potential outcomes formulation for causal inference to research settings including: mediation, compliance adjustments, time-1 time-2 designs, encouragement designs, heterogeneous treatment effects, aggregated data, instrumental variables, analysis of covariance regression adjustments, and implementations of matching methods. Prerequisite: STATS 209A/MSE 327 or other introduction to causal inference methods. (Formerly HRP 239)
Terms: Win | Units: 2

EPI 244: Developing Measurement Tools for Health Research

(Formerly HRP 244) The focus of this course is on providing the skills necessary to develop, validate and administer both qualitative and quantitative measures and instruments. Topics will include creating valid measures, ensuring the measures used address and apply to the research questions, design and samples; determining when to use standardized measures or develop new ones; instrument validation techniques; factor analysis; and survey administration, including determining the most effective way of administering measures (e.g., online, paper-and-pencil, ACASI) and the best way to design the survey.
Terms: Win | Units: 2

EPI 250: Understanding Evidence-Based Medicine: Hands-on experience (CHPR 205, MED 250)

How can one practice evidence-based medicine and make evidence-based decisions for clinical practice and policy making? Using pivotal papers published in the recent scientific literature addressing important clinical questions on diverse medical topics, we will probe a wide range of types of studies, types of targeted therapeutic or preventive interventions, and types of studied outcomes (effectiveness and/or safety), including RCTs, observational studies, epidemiologic surveillance studies, systematic reviews-umbrella reviews-meta-analyses-meta-analyses of individual patient data, studies on the evaluation of diagnostic tests and prognostic models, economic analyses studies, and guidelines. Students enrolled for 4 units will complete an additional project or other engagement approved by the instructor. MD studies enroll for +/-. GR students enroll for Letter grade.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4

EPI 261: Intermediate Biostatistics: Analysis of Discrete Data (BIOMEDIN 233, STATS 261)

(Formerly HRP 261) Methods for analyzing data from case-control and cross-sectional studies: the 2x2 table, chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, odds ratios, Mantel-Haenzel methods, stratification, tests for matched data, logistic regression, conditional logistic regression. Emphasis is on data analysis in SAS or R. Special topics: cross-fold validation and bootstrap inference.
Terms: Win | Units: 3

EPI 263: Social Epidemiology

Preference to graduate students with prior coursework in Epidemiology. Focuses on understanding the theory and empirical evidence that shows support for the relationships between social environments and health. Covers four main topics: the historical development of social epidemiology, and a survey of the major theories in social epidemiology; the three main empirical approaches used to generate new knowledge in social epidemiology: traditional observational studies, quasi-experimental studies and experimental approaches; how the constructs of social class, race/ethnicity and gender are used in social epidemiology; new emerging empirical approaches within the field including the application of causal, machine learning and complex systems methods.
Terms: Win | Units: 2
Instructors: Rehkopf, D. (PI)

EPI 273: Essentials of Clinical Research at Stanford

The course will consist of an introduction to the fundamentals of clinical research at Stanford, including the science of clinical research (design and analysis) and logistics (GCP, data management, regulatory). Material will be covered in approximately 4-6 3 hour sessions per quarter.
Terms: Win | Units: 1
Instructors: Goodman, S. (PI)
