Tuesday evening lectures

Our course is usually complemented by several light, entertaining pre-dinner lectures, which are given by distinguished faculty. These lectures, that cover current important issues and controversies in epidemiology, are open to all students and followed by lively and informal discussion.

We are pleased now to share them online on our website. Good vision!
