A life course approach to epidemiology is the study of the long-term effects on later health, or disease risk of physical or social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, or later adult life. Much of the interest in life course epidemiology has centred around chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease (CHD), type II diabetes, and cancer, but its concepts have also been adopted for mental and dental health. This chapter discusses educational aspects of life course epidemiology from both an undergraduate and postgraduate perspective.

Keywords:   epidemiology, teaching, life course, undergraduate course, postgraduate course, course outline
