Welcome from the EEPE Course Director

We had a very successful 2015 course with around 100 participants
and more than 95% of participants evaluating the course as satisfactory or very satisfactory. We are nowCREAL_booklet bienvenida heading for the 2016 course. We will do some changes in the program based on the specific evaluations we received by participants and faculty, but the overall structure will be similar to that for 2015. On 2016 we will have, in addition, two Pre-course Modules the week 13 to 17 June one on “Introduction to Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology” (five days) and one on  “Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Epidemiology” (three days).

The EEPE is under the patronage of the International Epidemiological Association, the WHO, Centre for Environment and Health, and the Italian Association of Epidemiology, and run in collaboration with several European Universities.

The course, now in its twenty-ninth year, is intended for epidemiologists, public health practioners, statisticians and clinicians with an interest in epidemiology. The course offers in the first two weeks five general modules on epidemiological study design and statistical analysis of epidemiological data. In the third week seven special modules cover topics of current relevance for health and advanced methodological issues. The courses are taught in English by lecturers mostly from European universities and research institutes and are held in residential form in the “Stadium” centre on the hills close to Florence.

Participants have appreciated the opportunity of combining an intensive learning experience with the unique attraction for cultural and artistic enjoyment offered by Florence and Tuscany.

We gratefully acknowledge the support and collaboration over many years of the Health Authorities and the Regional Health Agency of the Tuscany Region.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2017 EEPE courses.
