How to design, analyze and report an epidemiological study

The course aims to give a broad methodological background on methods in epidemiology at an intermediate and advanced level. It will cover topics such as design of epidemiological studies, bias, measures of disease frequency, controlling for confounding, basic stratified analysis, biological interaction, use of regression models, and prediction of disease.

The course design will require active participation from the students. Discussions will be based on published articles.
