Clinical Epidemiology is a cornerstone discipline in Public Health. It is the foundation on which public health decisions are made, implemented and evaluated. Clinical Epidemiology applies the concepts and techniques of epidemiology, statistics, and decision analysis to clinical problems in patient care settings.
