Note: Department permission required for enrolment
From 2017, CEPI5102 is no longer a core unit in the Clinical Epidemiology program. It will only be available to the pre-2017 cohort of Clinical Epidemiology students in order for them to complete the core requirements of their degree. Alternatively, all pre-2017 students will be offered the option to transfer to the revised (2017 onwards) coursework resolutions so that they do not have to complete the core CEPI5102 requirement, but they are under no obligation to do so.
