The Epidemiology and Biostatistics Programmes at the School of Public Health and Primary Care of the Chinese University of Hong Kong has been successfully offering for over 25 years. We strive to promote excellence in clinical, public health and translational research and in evidence-based medicine and provide great opportunities for students to be trained as effective leaders in research.

Worldwide there has been an increasing interest and demand for training in these areas. In order to help both local and non-local students especially including those from mainland China to benefit from the Master Degree Programme, we have launched a one-year full-time Master degree programme in 2013.

The programme is jointly offered by the Division of Epidemiology and Division of Biostatistics, with support from Hong Kong Cochrane Branch and the CUHK Centre for Clinical Trials. The School has over 200 staff, with many having educational, working and/or teaching experiences in world prestigious academic institutions including Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Peking, Johns Hopkins, and UCLA.

Each year there are over 500 postgraduate students studying in the School. There are seminars in almost every week day in the School, which are open to all staff and students and can help students broaden their interests and knowledge well beyond their normal curriculum. There are also many elective courses students can choose from for their special interests in addition to the main curriculum.

All the courses are primarily conducted in English. Many of our teaching staff and students come from different countries and different cultural backgrounds. Studying with us, you not only learn new knowledge but also make new friends.

Aims and Features

The courses aim to provide comprehensive training in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical and health research and to interpret and use findings from such studies for patient care and policy making. We also teach students how to write professional reports and scientific research papers. Since there are emphases on clinical epidemiology and interpretation of epidemiological research results, the courses are also particularly useful for those who wish to master critical appraisal skills for evidence-based medicine.

We offer different programmes of study to cater to varying needs of students. The Postgraduate Diploma programme offers the essentials of both epidemiology and biostatistics, whereas the Diploma programme allows more flexibility and only requires students' attendance in either epidemiology or biostatistics courses. The Master of Science (MSc) programme extends learning to a broader range of topics and involves more in-depth discussions. MSc students are also required to conduct a research project independently under the supervision of a faculty member and produce a thesis of publishable standard before graduation. We also encourage and support student's application for research grant. Some students’ work have been published in prestigious medical journals, such as Lancet, Cancer, and Chest.

Career Benefits

Our programmes have been cited as being greatly instrumental to our students’ career development. Many graduates have advanced to more senior positions in clinical, research, academic and administrative fields upon completion of our programmes. Some changed to a research career in universities or other academic institutions and some moved on to doctoral studies.
