|Description:||The GDCE is a novel completely online delivered course-based program by the department of Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics (CE&B), covering core topics of clinical epidemiology. Starting in the academic year 2015-2016, four online graduate courses will be offered as one harmonized package for GDCE: Fundamentals of Health Research and Evaluation Methods (771), Introduction to Biostatistics (774), Introduction to Research Methods for Randomized Controlled Trials (772), and Systematic Review Methods (773). At GDCE completion a formal graduate diploma will be awarded to students. Costs will be approximately $3,300 CAD per course, pending final approval by McMaster University.
The Graduate Diploma in Clinical Epidemiology (GDCE) builds on the strengths of the internationally respected Health Research Methods (HRM) Graduate Programs in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University. Like the HRM program, the courses are taught by faculty in the Department of CE&B, a premier destination for graduate study and research in clinical epidemiology. The four online courses comprising the program are recognized as equivalent to the core HRM courses, and are ideal for applicants with an interest in HRM training without the commitment of an entire MSc degree completed on site. Graduates will gain foundational knowledge in the tenets of evidence-based medicine and a skill set applicable in clinical, policy, management, and research settings.
