Our courses in Belgium and abroad

The first International Course in Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Qualitative Research Methods (EBQ) course was successfully organized in October 2013. It is a six-week concentrated course on the basic principles and methods of epidemiology and medical statistics. In the fall of 2017 the fifth edition will be organised.

Next to that, for the third consecutive year we offer an introductory course on International and Global Development and Health Care, called 'IGOG'. The target audience consist mainly of 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. 

All relevant information on all courses can be found in the menu on your left. Do keep an eye on this website for updates and future programmes.
