30th Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology 2023

30th Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology 2023

Dates: Monday 6th - Friday 10th March 2023
Location: Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen

In 2023 our Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology celebrates its 30th year.  During the course, delegates will cover disease measurement; the principles of epidemiological study design and analysis; the collection of data in epidemiological studies; and various methodological considerations including bias, confounding, validity, and reliability.

We aim to take delegates to a level that would be covered in an epidemiological module of an MPH programme.  The course is not a statistics course and, while the course will cover the principles of epidemiological analysis, how different approaches should be employed for different study designs, and how these should be interpreted, it does not cover advanced analytical techniques.  The course assumes no prior epidemiological training and will cover basic topics in each of the above areas, as well as some more advanced topics.

Please contact epidemiology@abdn.ac.uk if you have any queries.
