International course at the University of Antwerp, Belgium

THE CALL FOR THE OCTOBER 2021 EDITION IS POSTPONED TO MARCH 8th 2021

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 will 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.

Due to the pandemic, the 8th edition of the EBQ-course that was first foreseen to take place in the fall of 2020 was postponed to the spring of 2021. The 9th edition will be held in October-November 2021.

For this upcoming fall edition 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.
