Department of Epidemiology
MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Department of Epidemiology at the Tulane School of Public Health and
Tropical Medicine is to play a leading role in the improvement of global public health. This is
accomplished through our programs of research, education and service at the local, national and
international level.
The Department of Epidemiology has substantial research expertise in the epidemiology of
cardiovascular/renal diseases, infectious diseases, reproductive health, cancer, environmental
health, genetic and molecular epidemiology, outcomes research, clinical trials and epidemiologic
methodology.
We have a long history of and a strong commitment to training the next generation of global
public health leaders. Classroom instruction is enhanced by unique field and research
opportunities and strong mentorship.
Specifically, we seek to:



Advance knowledge with respect to a wide range of critical threats to public health
through our research efforts;
Translate this research knowledge into relevant training for the next generation of public
health professionals, both in the classroom and through experiential learning
opportunities; and
Apply that knowledge in a wide range of service and practice activities and programs that
have a direct impact on the public health of communities around the world.
