"Maths was never my strong point at school and I did have some concerns regarding my ability. I needn’t have worried, as the staff support was brilliant and the course structure certainly met my learning needs. I’m so pleased I did the course."Vicky Brand, Oral Health Improvement Manager, Manchester Health and Wellbeing Service, Epidemiology and Statistics for Public Health Single Module, 2016
"With an experience of having studied in two different countries (UAE and India), let me tell this with complete sincerity, that I have had the best learning experience here - especially in Epidemiology and Statistics when you taught us this module in such a spellbinding manner that instilled interest and fascination in me that I really wish to pursue a PhD in Epidemiology in the future (hopefully at the University of Salford).
I have kept safe all the slides and notes you had prepared for us during the classes for my referral, which I believe is equivalent to reading a dozen of the best books written by experienced researchers in Epidemiology, that shall in turn also help me in my career as well.I have no words on how to thank you for what you had done but what I can certainly say is that Epidemiology and Statistics needs highly experienced and extremely skilled and talented staff like yourself to teach this topic that may otherwise seem to be complicated and also instill passion and interest in future students of the University so that they may realise the value and importance of this topic and the indispensable role it plays in public health and medicine. Thanking you with all my best wishes to keep continuing this great art of teaching and supporting students at the University!"Harikrishna Vignesh, MSc Public Health, 2015
I can't believe how much I've learned and consequently use in clinical practice from this module. I'm not sure back in September I would have believed I'd be saying that I enjoyed the Statistics side of Public Health too!Caroline Moss, MSK Team Leader Physiotherapist, Pennine Acute NHS Trust, Epidemiology and Statistics for Public Health Single Module, 2017
