This course focuses on methodological issues pertinent to the epidemiological investigation of adverse reproductive outcome. Students develop an understanding of 1) basic reproductive biology; 2) available methods for measuring reproductive outcomes including an appreciation for the strengths and limitations of these methods; and 3) critical issues in exposure assessment. Students also become familiar with problems of bias in the study of reproductive outcome and appropriate design strategies given methodological, practical and financial constraints.
