26th Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology – University of Aberdeen

Although the course covers concepts and methods common to all chronic disease epidemiology, it has a particular musculoskeletal focus and may be of interest to CAHPR members. Indeed, there have previously been a number of CAHPR members on the course. Also of interest, there are number of bursaries available.

The course has a long history and next year sees the 26th edition, and the 13th in Aberdeen. The course is pitched at a level equivalent to an Epidemiology module in an MSc / MPH course and, although a background in medicine / healthcare / health research is assumed, no prior knowledge of epidemiology is expected. The course has four streams:

  • Disease measurement
  • Study design
  • Methodology
  • Key skills

and we illustrate concepts using examples across several clinical areas. The course features a faculty with an international reputation, all active researchers in arthritis and musculoskeletal health. However, the course covers concepts and methods common to all chronic disease epidemiology.
