EpidM offers a Dutch-taught Master’s Programme in Epidemiology, as well as English-taught Winter Courses in epidemiological and advanced statistical methods.
EpidM Winter Courses provide a unique opportunity to attend advanced level courses in epidemiology and applied biostatistics, while experiencing the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
The programme committee has developed a very engaging programme which covers courses in Clinical Prediction Models and Machine Learning, Missing Data, Clinimetrics, Item Response Theory, Causal Inference and Propensity Score Methods, and Introduction to Bayesian Statistics.
One of the strengths of EpidM courses is the combination of lectures and computer practicals, allowing participants to apply their new gained knowledge right away. The courses are taught by highly experienced teachers. Some of the course materials were written by our experts themselves!
The program is designed for a wide range of (medical) professionals, including academic researchers, clinical specialists, general practitioners, dentists, nursing staff, physiotherapists, practitioners of social medicine, epidemiologists, regional or municipal public health workers, as well as consultants, health education workers, prevention workers and health insurers.
This winter we offer on-site courses and online courses. On the webpage of the different courses you can find out how the course is offered.
All courses have the the same format: interactive lectures are alternated with working groups and/or computer practicals.
Our work methods offer the opportunity to dive deep into the material. The interactive lectures are given to relatively small groups (max. 28-36 students). These lectures are alternated with working groups and/or computer practicals. The teachers and tutors supervise the working groups (max. 10-12 students) and computer practicals. Learning by doing, learning from each other and working together in a multidisciplinary team are the didactic principles that form the basis of our education.
The courses are taught in (3-6) consecutive days. In this way, the courses can be conveniently combined with a (fulltime) job.
Our courses are taught by a permanent team of teachers. During the courses, lecturers and students spend a number of consecutive days together, ensuring a pleasant learning climate with plenty of room for formal and informal interaction. This also offers students the opportunity to discuss questions from their own research practice with teachers. With many students being health care professionals, many in the position of (medical) researcher, there is ample opportunity for networking and exchanging experiences.
Students can find all course-related information and documents on Canvas, a digital learning environment. Course materials published on Canvas will remain available for at least one year (with the exception of any recorded lectures).
About three weeks prior to the start of a course, students will receive an email with practical information. Login accounts for Canvas will be provided no later than one week before the start of a course.
