This chapter serves as a guide for developing a course in psychiatric epidemiology; that is, epidemiological methods applied to the study of psychiatric disorders rather than the epidemiology of specific psychiatric disorders. Methodological issues particularly relevant for these pathologies are emphasized, leaving the delineation of the substantive content of different mental disorders to the instructor's interests and expertise. This course does not need to assume prior training in psychiatry or psychopathology, and can be oriented to students at different educational levels. It is expected that students enrolled in this type of course have an interest in public health, medicine or psychology.
