As one of the very few online medical courses in veterinary epidemiology that is available, this course is highly suitable for veterinary researchers with an interest in epidemiology, who want to understand the concepts of epidemiology and apply these concepts in data analysis. It is taught by epidemiologists from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and forms part of the MSc Epidemiology program of the UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University.
This course teaches study design for veterinary epidemiological research, focusing on those aspects specific to animal health. You will encounter typical confounders in veterinary epidemiology, such as breed and parity, but also get to work with clustered sampling, such as by farm, and diagnostics without a gold standard. During the course, you will learn that these concepts are relevant for human epidemiology as well.
You will learn to apply epidemiological know-how and statistical methods during hands-on computer practical and lectures.
