International Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Qualitative research methods (I-EBQ)


The EBQ course offers a profound training of 3 months at home and 6 weeks on campus on the basic principles and methods of epidemiology. In-depth hands-on studies of medical statistics with appropriate statistical methods will be integrated with the main epidemiological content. Qualitative researh methods will be explained and trained throug hands on training. A series of lectures on systematic reviews and meta-analyses and an introductory lecture on health economics and cost-effectiveness are programmed.  Throughout the whole course, each participant will have the opportunity to work with a data set from the organisers before handling their own dataset  under the guidance of experienced tutors.  Each participant will receive a reader including necessary didactic materials (handouts, power point slides, articles, etc.). Finally, the students will present their methods and results in a symposium format. Some academic inspiring events i.e. PhD defenses of EBQ aumni, scientific congress participation are part of the program
