TOP REVIEWS FROM DATA AND HEALTH INDICATORS IN PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE
those who wants to get in the feild of public health and in health econimics this is one of the course to learn and develope their skills.
Very good instructor and learning aides. You do need to read and then watch the videos as they go quite fast with a lot of details to absorb.
I think the last week's module was by far the most helpful. Although the first three weeks were useful, the fourth week made it worth my time.
The information that this course had provided was shallow and very limited, I was expecting deeper and richer topics to be discussed in a course like this.
