Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Qualitative Research Methods

International course at the University of Antwerp, Belgium

22 October – 30 November 2018

In the fall of 2018 the International course in Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Qualitative Research Methods (EBQ) will be organized for the 6th time.  This course is an intensive six-week training on the basic principles and methods of epidemiology.  An in-depth study of medical statistics with appropriate statistical methods is integrated in the main epidemiological content.  Basic principles of qualitative methods will be explained, and introductory lectures will be given on systematic reviews, health economics, and cost-effectiveness.

Throughout the course each participant iwll have the opportunity to work with their own data set under the guidance of experienced tutors.  Each participant receives the Clinical Epidemiology handbook by Grobbee and Hoes, as well as other necessary didactic materials.

In 2018 we are once again able to provide 12 applicants with a full scholarship, thanks to VLIR-UOS.  The scholarship includes the course fee, a return air ticket, insurance, visa costs, accommodation, and a daily allowance. For eligibility criteria and application procedure, kindly go to the application page.
