Intensive Course in Epidemiology
This course in applied epidemiology has been running in Aberdeen since 2007, having previously been run at the Arthritis Research UK Epidemiology Unit, at the University of Manchester.
The course is pitched at a level equivalent to an Epidemiology module in a Masters course. Although a background in health-related studies is assumed, no prior knowledge of epidemiology is expected. The course has four streams: Disease measurement, Study Design, Methodology and Key Skills and we illustrate concepts using examples across several clinical areas.
