The 27th Residential Summer Course in Epidemiology in Florence, Italy is organized by the European Educational Programme in Epidemiology (EEPE) under the patronage of the International Epidemiological Association (IEA) and run in collaboration with several European Universities.
The 2014 edition of the three-week course (9 ECTS), which will run from 23 June – 11 July 2014 has been thoroughly revised and updated. The course offers a lively mixture of methodological lectures, guest lectures on special topics, and practical exercises, in a stunning environment in the hills above Florence. The course provides an overview of epidemiological methods, the core concepts of epidemiological thinking, and allows students to acquire skills in the analysis of epidemiological data. In the last week students can choose from different modules, including modules on advanced statistical analysis, advanced epidemiological concepts, and methodological issues in environmental, clinical epidemiology or reproductive epidemiology. The course is ideal for students doing a PhD in epidemiology and anyone else moving into epidemiology.
Every year EEPE offers an additional one-week course (3 ECTS) on a topical theme in Epidemiology. The 2014 edition of the Special Course will be given by George Davey Smith (University of Bristol) from 16 June – 20 June 2014 on Genomic and epigenomic epidemiology: role in life-course research and causal inference.
Students can register for the three-week course, the one-week course, or both.
