4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a well-written, easy to read, well-illustrated primer, which medical students and others should read. A nice feature of the book is all key concepts are highlighted for emphasis, with summaries at the beginning and end of each chapter."--Doody's Review Service
This book provides students with an overview of the principles and concepts of epidemiology and illustrates the complementary relationship between population-based science and the care of patients
Thoroughly updated, this new edition features epidemiologic implications of bio-terrorism, “Patient Profiles” within each chapter, and USMLE clinical vignettes within the “Study Question” section of each chapter.
