MIDAS Training Activities

The MIDAS community strongly values training and professional development of students, postdocs, and junior faculty. Some longstanding training activities occur annually in the MIDAS network, such as summer courses and short courses in infectious disease modeling. New training opportunities are created continuously by MIDAS members. Occasionally, travel or participation support for attendees will be available from the MIDAS Coordination Center or other organizations. The description of each training opportunity will indicate if financial support is available for the event. We list all current and previous training events below, and let us know about new events! Email questions@midasnetwork.org in case of questions!
