Course Description

Research provides the necessary evidence for clinical and public health practice. Drawing upon an interdisciplinary base of social scientific literature, this course provides a comprehensive introduction to the research process and methodologies used in social and public health research as well as the dissemination of research findings for public health practice. Topics covered will include how to start a research project, reviewing and synthesizing literature, distinguishing between scientific literature and other sources of information, formulating research questions, sampling methods, research ethics, quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, and research writing. It is the first of a two-course research sequence which aims to prepare you for the capstone course, the Senior Seminar (PH 5920), next semester.
