Content

This specialism will enable graduates to use real world evidence to lead on the design and delivery of evidence focused projects, particularly on data analysis, modelling, and interpretation of findings. Academic epidemiologists will typically explore research questions through conducting secondary analyses on existing data sets.

Epidemiological studies form a significant proportion of the department’s research output that includes research on cancer surveillance, long-term conditions and occupational health. Epidemiology teaching at Glasgow enjoys high-level support and input from the National Health Service ensuring a close link to practice and employers.
