We are pleased to announce the successful completion of this year's Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology.
The course, in its 28th year, had a different flavour this year as global circumstances necessitated that we move sessions to an online format for the very first time.
Rather than the usual one-week intensive format, the course was spread over five weeks, covering a range of topics vital for a key grounding in epidemiological research including study design, bias and confounding, inferring causation from association and qualitative methods.
This year we were delighted to welcome 21 delegates from 11 countries including from Europe, the USA and as far afield as the United Arab Emirates and Singapore, with delegates bringing a range of experiences and professional expertise from both private and public institutions.
The course was taught by Professor Gary Macfarlane, Dr Gareth Jones, Dr Rosemary Hollick and Dr Linda Dean from the Epidemiology Group, and we were also pleased to welcome Dr James Galloway from King's College London, who delivered an excellent session on Randomised Control Trials.
We anticipate that the course will return to a face-to-face format for our 29th annual edition in 2022. You can keep up to date with the latest information for next year’s ICAE at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/icae.
