The Summer School will benefit public health professionals as well as students.
- 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 epidemiology applied to health care planning and evaluation. They will acquire familiarity with epidemiological and biostatistical principles and techniques and with the computational tools needed to solve practical problems.
- Students in biostatistics and epidemiology, and researchers both 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, 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.
The Summer School offers courses at introductory and advanced levels. Students can choose between attending one or two weeks.
The School is held at the Castel Brando in Cison di Valmarino, 40 kilometers north of Treviso, in Veneto, in the north-east of Italy.
