The PhD program in Epidemiology and Translational Science, a collaboration between the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and UCSF’s renowned Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, offers high caliber training in core skills of epidemiologic and biostatistical methods along with practical research rotations that enhance classroom training.

Epidemiology serves as a key discipline in team science and in problem-based learning. We view the use of epidemiology in translational science as a critical perspective and set of research methods that will move basic scientific discoveries to practical clinical applications and dissemination of new basic and clinical knowledge to population health settings. A central goal is to take advantage of the highly interdisciplinary nature of UCSF and to adopt a transdisciplinary approach to graduate education.

The PhD program is a three- to four-year course of study for individuals who wish to pursue independent research careers in epidemiology and translational science and who have already completed training at the master's level in epidemiology, public health or a related field. Candidates without a master's degree may want to consider our Master's Degree in Clinical Research. We encourage applications to our PhD program from those who are successfully completing our master's program.

We especially encourage applications from students interested in our 14 areas of concentration with particular research depth at UCSF:

  • Aging (including cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disease, and dementia/brain aging)
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biostatistics
  • Cancer epidemiology
  • Cardiovascular and neurologic disorders
  • Clinical epidemiology
  • Environmental and occupational epidemiology
  • Genetic epidemiology
  • Global health
  • Implementation science
  • Infectious disease epidemiology
  • Reproductive, perinatal and neonatal epidemiology
  • Research in epidemiologic methods
  • Social epidemiology
