Engaged across disciplines for our collective health and well-being

Welcome to the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health! Part of McGill’s School of Population and Global Health, our department provides an interdisciplinary environment that aims to produce cutting-edge and impactful research on issues related to the improvement of health from the perspective of three broadly defined disciplines.

Education - Measuring and managing complex global issues

Research - Advocating interdisciplinary approaches for healthier outcomes

Community outreach - Reaching beyond to establish a shared vision and influence change

Inter-disciplinary, problem-oriented research 

Our contributions are as unique as each of our researchers and students
