Fundamentals of Epidemiology is a foundational resource that equips students with a strong understanding of both the principles and real-world applications of the science of public health. Its applied approach, demonstrating epidemiological concepts in action in a variety of different settings, uniquely prepares students for the challenges and exciting opportunities of this dynamic field.

This engaging textbook cultivates a strong knowledge base through an explanation of the history of epidemiology and its core concepts, while providing a framework for critical thinking about public health topics. Other foundational concepts are then described and explored in the context of the real world, including descriptive epidemiology and surveillance, analytic epidemiology, study designs, effect measure modification, systematic and random error, and data analysis and modeling. Building from chapter to chapter, the textbook reinforces key concepts and their applications to the field while also confronting common mistakes that new learners of epidemiology make head-on. This textbook incorporates thoughtful public health examples, scenarios, and descriptions that foster the investigative mindset and problem-solving approach that is needed in epidemiology. With abundant illustrations, historical vignettes, case examples, and practice problems covering topics such as social determinants of health, infectious disease, applications of epidemiology to policy and more, this inviting textbook prepares students to think like an epidemiologist, equipping them with the fundamentals essential for careers in public health, medicine, nursing, and other health professions.
