Clinical epidemiology is the application of epidemiologic principles and methods to problems encountered in public health and
clinical medicine. It provides important information for clinicians and health policy decision makers in order to identify risk factors for diseases and to determine optimal preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for individuals and populations. This course covers the key elements and methods of clinical epidemiology and combines theoretical concepts with practical applications using real world case examples. Participants will develop a study design as group exercise.
