The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics aims to understand and improve the health of populations through research and teaching that promote social justice and public health policy changes. Faculty members are actively engaged in cutting edge research to address critical and current public health problems in New York and around the world. The Department offers an MPH in epidemiology and biostatistics and a PhD degree in epidemiology. Our mission is to train the next cadre of public health practitioners, epidemiologists and biostatisticians in rigorous epidemiology and statistical methods and their applications to pressing and real-life public health problems.
