The core epidemiologic concepts that are the subject of any methods course may appear clear-cut and simple on the surface but are, in fact, multilayered with many finely distinguished subtleties. It is imperative that students new to the field be articulately walked through the material and not be misinformed. Having a firm command of these concepts is a vital prerequisite for becoming a teaching assistant (TA) for any methods course. The duties and responsibilities of a TA vary according to the educational institution, level of study (i.e. graduate versus undergraduate), and area of concentration (i.e. for majors or non-majors), but there is a common thread that runs true regardless of the situation: the TA represents the bridge between the professor and the student. This chapter discusses the roles and responsibilities of TAs.
