Epidemiology: Education

 The division of Epidemiology strongly supports the Stony Brook University Clinical Research Training Program (also known as the K30 Program). The K30 Program provides residents, fellows and junior faculty (MD and PhD) with a multidisciplinary didactic training experience that may be combined with individual mentoring.
Individuals may enroll in the Clinical Research Training Program for either one or two years. Upon successful completion of one year of coursework, an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Research will be awarded. Utilizing the knowledge gained through completion of the K30 curriculum, those persons wishing to pursue a second year will work closely with a mentor to develop and complete a research project, culminating in publication of the results in a scientific peer-reviewed publication, a presentation at a national meeting, or submission of a grant application.

Individuals wishing to pursue a career in academic medicine, patient-oriented clinical investigation and grant funded research are strongly encouraged to apply. Complete information about the Clinical Research Training Program (K30) can be found by clicking the following link: http://www.osa.sunysb.edu/k30/index.html

 The division of Epidemiology actively participates in the first year medical student curriculum through the Prevention seminar component of the Foundations training. Several members of the division are group leaders, leading sessions on the following topics:
  • Outbreak Investigation
  • Screening Tests
  • Case Control Studies
  • Epi Methods & Cohort Studies
  • Clinical Trials
  • Evaluating the Literature
The division offers Epidemiology and Biostatistics courses that are widely attended by a broad range of participants. These courses are required for participants in the K-30 program. Preventive Medicine Residents earning an M.P.H. degree may apply these courses towards their academic requirements. Additionally, SBU faculty and SOM Fellows and Residents attend these lectures to enhance their ability to understand and perform basic research.
