Welcome from the EEPE Course Directors
We had a very successful 2017 course especially thanks to the enthusiasm of the students and faculty. Around 100 participants from 20 countries attended the course, and we would like to thank those all who contributed to this great achievement. The four invited lectures to celebrate the 30th anniversary and the three distinguished lectures have been video recorded and are available throught the EEPE website. The slides of the Rodolfo Saracci inaugural lecture are also online. We are now heading for the 2018 course. Although we will introduce some changes to continue improving the course, the overall structure will be similar to that for 2017. As for previous years, on 2018 we will have Pre-course Modules the week 11 to 15 June. Please, visit the EEPE website or our Facebook page to keep updated.
The course, now in its thirty-first year, is intended for epidemiologists, public health practitioners, 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 several 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 “Studium” 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 are proud to report a comment written by a participant in the evaluation form at the end of the course “Nowhere else such a high quality presentation of the key topics in modern epidemiology in such a short time”.
We gratefully acknowledge the support and collaboration over many years of the International Epidemiological Association, WHO and the Regional Health Agency of the Tuscany Region.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2018 EEPE courses.
