2014 Clinical Epidemiology Institute

The ability to read, interpret and assess study findings has become an essential skill. Taught by the institute’s internationally-renowned clinical epidemiology faculty, the Clinical Epidemiology Institute provides a unique combination of theory and practical skills.

” If you currently struggle through the methodology section of the research articles that land on your desk – this Institute will be invaluable. The program combines an introduction to the fundamentals of research methodology with the practical skills of critical appraisal. The emphasis is on clear, accessible information that can be applied immediately.”
