Epidemiology celebrates 75 YearsSince 1941, the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan School of Public Health has worked to reduce disease in human populations through research, education, and service.

We practice epidemiology as a broad scientific discipline, addressing the occurrence of disease and the distribution of health status in populations. By exploring causal concepts at the molecular, cellular, clinical, and social-environmental levels, our diverse faculty integrates biological, social, and analytic approaches. Our students develop the breadth of knowledge necessary to fully appreciate the complexities of the biosocial systems that we seek to understand and modify to create a healthier world.
