1 PhD Epidemiology Note: All curriculum revisions will be updated immediately on the website Application Due Date: December 1st Program Director Sean D. Cleary, PhD, MPH 950 New Hampshire Avenue, NW Washington, DC Tel: MISSION The mission of the Epidemiology PhD program in the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University is to prepare students for a career in epidemiologic research in an academic, government, or industry setting. PROGRAM GOALS The goals of the PhD program are to ensure graduates: Gain knowledge across a wide range of epidemiologic and biostatistical theories and methods; Gain specific knowledge of epidemiology in one or more of the following areas: infectious disease, chronic disease, environmental and occupational health, or physical activity; Understand general and specialized advanced epidemiologic concepts; Understand how to apply statistical methods to biological/biomedical sciences and health services; Understand and abide by guidelines for ethical treatment of research participants; Conduct and analyze data from a research study; Disseminate research findings to scientific and lay audiences. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS Doctoral students are required to pass a written comprehensive examination and complete a dissertation. For the comprehensive examination the student must demonstrate advanced knowledge of epidemiologic and biostatistical methods. For the dissertation, the student must design and execute an original research study that contributes new knowledge to the field and demonstrates proficiency in using advanced analytic methods. PhD, Epidemiology students may choose to follow one of two tracks. Option A is more quantitative and requires an additional semester of calculus for admission. This allows students to take more advanced quantitative/statistical courses offered by the Department of Statistics. COMPETENCIES At the completion of the doctoral program in epidemiology students will be able to: Demonstrate understanding of general and specialized epidemiologic concepts: Demonstrate knowledge of advanced epidemiologic concepts with specialized knowledge in a specific area of epidemiology (e.g., 1

3 MATH 122 Single-Variable Calculus II The calculus of exponential and logarithmic functions. L Hopital s rule. Techniques of integration. Infinite series and Taylor series. Polar coordinates. Prerequisite: Math 121 THE FOLLOWING PREREQUISITE IS FOR OPTION A ONLY: MATH 22 Multivariable Calculus Partial derivatives and multiple integrals. Vector-valued functions. Topics in vector calculus, including line and surface integrals and the theorems of Gauss, Green, and Stokes. Prerequisite: MATH 122 Additional Course Requirements The courses listed below are additional course requirements. Applicants lacking these courses (or equivalents to these GW courses) will be considered for admission, but will be admitted conditionally with the expectation that these courses will be completed within two semesters following matriculation in the program. Credits for these courses do not count toward the 72-credit graduation requirement, or are grades earned in these additional courses reflected in the overall grade-point average. MATH 2184 Linear Algebra I Linear equations, matrices, inverses, and determinants. Vector spaces, rank, eigenvalues, and diagonalization. Applications to geometry and ordinary differential equations. Prerequisite: MATH 121 STAT -or- 218 Intermediate Statistical Laboratory: Statistical Computing Packages -or- Application of program packages (e.g., SAS, SPSS) to the solution of one-, two- and k-sample parametric and nonparametric statistical problems. Basic concepts in data preparation, modification, analysis and interpretation of results. Prerequisite: an introductory statistics course. PubH 6249 Use of Statistical Packages: Data Management and Data Analysis This course familiarizes the student with one of the most widely used database management systems and statistical analysis software packages, the SAS System, operating in a Windows environment. Throughout the course, several database management system techniques and data analytical strategies for the appropriate analysis of datasets obtained from a variety of studies will be presented. Statistical techniques covered include linear regression, analysis of variance, logistic regression, and survival analysis.
