PhD students must also complete the Foundations of Public Health modules.
*Can take NUTR 620 in lieu of BIOSTAT 522. Please discuss with your mentor.
*Students must take one of PUBHLTH 512 or 600. EPID 600 offers a deeper view on theory
methods such as causal inference. We recommend EPID 600 but please discuss with your mentor.
**Can take NUTR 620 in lieu of BIOSTAT 522. Please discuss with your mentor.
