Excellent introduction to epidemiology and public health, all the topics link together well and provide a good understanding of the public health basics which assist with related study and work.
Very informative and simple. A good refresher course for medical students who want to get into public health. The instructor is very clear and concise, making the whole thing easily digestible.

really didn't get the point of this course. I understand there are 1 million ways that affect how someone get a disease, but it really had nothing to do with healthcare or how to treat others. It was more of a statistics course. Might I suggest courses that talk about more common diseases or something more health-related. We all know that the US healthcare system favors the rich when it's the working class and the poor that have the most health problems. It's simply not fair.

Disappointed in week 2 and the assessment in week 4. The instructor did a great job.

I studied this course as part of the specialization "Epidemiology in Public Health Practice", which accumulates 5 courses like this one.
After final validation and many hours of study, the final certificate for the specialization states that I worked an estimated "4 weeks of study, 2-3 hours/week", which is the same amount of time stated for a single course, such as "Essential Epidemiologic Tools for Public Health Practice".
This is frustrating and people may not want to add this specialization to their Curriculum Vitae. Amount of time spent is not real.

Boring and the language used is not appropriate. Some of the lectures are just hay. A lot of talk without meaning.
