This 3+1 days short course led by Prof Tony Blakely (Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics) and Prof John Lynch (The University of Adelaide) will provide a systematic overview of epidemiological concepts and methods, building up from sources of error (confounding, information bias, selection bias) to bias analysis methods, then a range of contemporary methods. The course is premised on a counterfactual and potential outcomes approach to epidemiology. This course is designed for participants with an intermediate-level of knowledge of epidemiology study design and analytical methods, systematic error and biostatistics.
Common attendees of this course include advanced MPH and PhD students, early career researchers, and senior investigators who want an efficient “catch up” on some of the new thinking and methods being used in higher quality research publications.
Venue: The University of Melbourne, Graduate House, 220 Leicester Street, Carlton.
