The first International course in Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Qualitative Research Methods (EBQ) was successfully organized in October 2013. It is a six-week long intensive course on the basic principles and methods of epidemiology and medical statistics. In the fall of 2019 the seventh edition will be organized.
We also offer an introductory course on International and Global Development and Health Care (IGOG). The target audience is mainly UA students of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, as well as of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Vetrenary Sciences, who plan to do a (clinical) internship abroad.
The EPONGE workshop provides a series of theoretical and practical lectures to shed light onto epidemiology and population genetics and its relevance for the better understanding of the dynamics and evolution of infectious diseases. Venue was the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima (Peru) from 3 to 7 October 2016.
