The program in Chronic Disease Epidemiology emphasizes the acquisition of skills in epidemiologic and biostatistical methods that can be applied to a variety of problems covering both descriptive and analytic epidemiology. Students also gain knowledge of common chronic diseases and their epidemiology. Among the resources available to students are the Yale Cancer Center, the Connecticut Tumor Registry, the Yale Center for Perinatal, Pediatric, and Environmental Epidemiology, and the The Yale Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center. Students in the Social and Behavioral Sciences program learn to apply their skills to observational studies in psychosocial epidemiology and to health promotion/disease prevention interventions.
