Advanced Course in Epidemiological Analysis

Program type: 
Program description: 

Course duration: 10 days in September

Statistical methodology for the design and analysis of epidemiological studies is a fast-changing field. Participants in this intensive two-week short course will be given a thorough grounding both in classical methods of analysis and in the more advanced regression techniques. Participants will gain practical experience of data analysis using the computer package Stata. Various aspects of study design will also be considered.

The course is designed primarily for those working, or planning to work, on epidemiological research projects. The emphasis will be on developing an understanding of the underlying assumptions and principles, on the practical application of the techniques and on the correct interpretation of the results, rather than on the mathematical derivation of the methods.
