This Methods of Public Health Research course offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam focuses on population health rather than individual health and explains why different designs and methods are required, such as ecological studies and multilevel analysis. The course targets three key issues:
Designs and methods will be illustrated in lectures and exercises and application will demonstrate their usefulness in current hot topics, such as health inequalities; causes and consequences of ageing; avoidable diseases such as cancer; and evaluation of complex societal interventions.
The course will be relevant to those who have a basic knowledge of epidemiology, and who wish to start a career in public health research.
