LSTM will host 33rd Annual European Course on Tropical Epidemiology

News article 13 Jan 2014

For the fourth time LSTM will host the annual European course on Tropical Epidemiology. The course is scheduled from 18 August to 5 September 2014. The European Course in Tropical Epidemiology (ECTE) is 3-week intensive course on basic epidemiology and biostatistics.

The course is suitable for a wide range of health professionals, including medics, nurses, biologists and anthropologists working in the health sector. The course is intended for staff working in low and middle income countries as health programme managers or with an interest in public health in tropical settings. Emphasis is on methodology and the practical application of epidemiological tools in high burden-countries.

ECTE is a collaborative venture of various European centres of Tropical Medicine and Public Health and is held annually at a different venue.Although this is a basic course, some understanding of basic concepts of statistics would allow you to better appreciate the close relationship between epidemiology and medical statistics.

The course is well established and is run at full capacity in most years. We recommend applying early to secure a place. It will be a pleasure to welcome you in Liverpool in 2014.

LSTM hosted the course in 1989; 1999 and 2006.
