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.
