Very informative and was able to meet the needs of a novice epidemiologist who seeks basic knowledge about this field of public health.

Very good course. Simple, easy to understand and very informative

Very good and easy to understand by teaching method.

It was excellent. Although it required more attention that I had anticipated, as there is much nuance involved.
