[EQ] Residential Summer Course in Epidemiology - EEPE - Florence Italy

Residential Summer Course in Epidemiology

Florence, Italy, from 25 June to 13 July 2012,

Three week main course

Competing Risks Analysis

Florence, Italy, from 18 June to 21 June 2012,

One week course


EEPE European Educational Programme in Epidemiology

International Epidemiological Association, the WHO Centre for Environment and Health and the Italian Association of Epidemiology

The courses are taught in English by lecturers mostly from European Universities and Research Institutes and are held in residential form in the "Studium" centre on the hills close to Florence.

The main three week course offers in the first two weeks five general modules on epidemiological study design and statistical analysis of epidemiological data. In the third week six special modules, ranging from cancer epidemiology and fertility and pregnancy to the impact of changes of global climatic environment cover topics of current relevance for health (students can choose which modules to follow).

The morning and afternoon sessions include lectures, computer based analyses (using the “Stata” package), exercises and discussion sessions. To follow profitably this course, students are expected to possess some knowledge of epidemiological and statistical methods at introductory level.


The one week course on “Competing Risks Analysis” is addressed to students with special interest in these areas and a sound background knowledge of epidemiological and statistical methods.


All students should have a working knowledge of written and spoken English.
