Thoracic malignancies are major, global health problems. Lung cancer is the most common cancer and cause of cancer death in the world, with more than 1.5 million deaths per year. More Americans will die from lung cancer each year (approximately 159,480) than from colon, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancer combined (approximately 158,630), the next most common causes of cancer death. Esophageal cancer is the 6th most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide, and the 4th most common cause in developing nations.

Often called “the cornerstone” of public health, epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of diseases, health conditions, or events among populations and the application of that study to control health problems. By applying the concepts learned in this course to current public health problems and issues, students will understand the practice of epidemiology as it relates to real life and makes for a better appreciation of public health programs and policies. This course explores public health issues like cardiovascular and infectious diseases – both locally and globally – through the lens of epidemiology.

La frecuencia del ronquido durante el sueño es del 5-10%, en población infantil general. El ronquido es parológico en ausencia de procesos infecciosos de vía aérea superior. Su consecuencia es una menor oferta de oxígeno a diversos órganos, dando lugar a trastornos en el crecimiento y maduración en la infancia con repercusión también en el adulto.

Evidence forms the basis of modern medicine. Clinical research provides us with this evidence, guiding health professionals towards solutions to problems that they face in daily practice. Transferring existing problems in medical practice to a research setting is a challenging process that requires careful consideration. The practice of clinical epidemiology aims to address this through the application of established approaches for research in human populations, while at all times focussing on the problem at hand from a clinical perspective.

Surveiller les maladies, mener les enquêtes en population pour identifier leurs causes (comportements, expositions environnementales, facteurs génétiques) : c’est le rôle de l’épidémiologie dont ce cours vous enseigne les principes et méthodes. Ce cours débute par une présentation des grands principes de l’épidémiologie descriptive (surveillance des maladies, investigation d’épidémies) et de l’épidémiologie analytique (identification des facteurs de risque des maladies). Les principaux indicateurs de risque, la formulation d’une hypothèse scientifique, les schémas d’étude utilisés pour les enquêtes en population, la prise en compte des fluctuations d’échantillonnage, l’analyse statistique des résultats et l’interprétation des biais seront expliqués et illustrés par des exemples et des études de cas tirés de la vie réelle.

Social epidemiology is about how a society makes people sick and/or healthy. We address not only the identification of new disease risk factors (e.g., deficient social capital) but also how well-known exposures (e.g., cigarette smoking, lead paint, health insurance) emerge and are maintained by the social system.
