Who should attend

  • Physicians
  • Clinicians
  • Public health professionals
  • Researchers
  • Students in biostatistics and epidemiology

Physicians, clinicians, and public health professionals from public and private institutions who are looking for systematic training in the principles of epidemiology and biostatistics or in epidemiology applied to healthcare planning and evaluation should attend. They will become familiar with epidemiological and biostatistical principles and techniques and with the computational tools needed to solve practical problems.

Students in biostatistics and epidemiology and researchers from public and private institutions who wish to increase their familiarity with quantitative methods or to deepen their knowledge of a specific area of interest should attend, so they can more effectively address problems in health research. They will gain knowledge in modern, advanced methods useful for health professionals engaged in clinical practice, research, and teaching.
