International course at the University of Antwerp, Belgium
THE CALL FOR THE 9th EDITION IS POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 1st 2021 - see below for more information
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 and is now again postponed to October-November 2021. This means that the 9th edition will also be postponed, most likely to April-May 2022. Confirmation and details will follow later.
