Students will develop skills in: I) formulating an abstract mathematical representation of the decision-making problem; II) choosing the appropriate quantitative technique to analyze the problem and; III) translating the solutions to the problem from the mathematical model back into the original "real world" situation; IV) the manipulation and interpretation of large data sets. This course is also designed to provide you with the ability to apply quantitative methods to epidemiology.
