27th Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology

2nd - 6th March 2020, Aberdeen, UK

Our well-established Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology celebrates its 27th year. Over 4.5 days, this intensive course covers concepts and methods common to all chronic disease epidemiology. During the course, delegates will cover principles of study design, the collection and analysis of data in epidemiological studies, and various methodological aspects of epidemiology study, including bias, confounding, validity and reliability. it assumes no prior epidemiological training and will cover basic and more advance topics in each of these areas, taking delegates to a level covered in an epidemiological module of a Masters degree. Each session will involve a lecture, but emphasis is placed on practical exercises and group work for solving problems.
