The Cohort Studies course offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam will focus on design and interpretation, emphasizing the principles and complexities of data collection over time and potential biases that may affect cohort data.
The course will be based on lectures as well as in small group and plenary discussions of exercises. Competencies to be gained in the course include the ability to interpret findings from cohort studies and to apply principles for the design of cohort studies.
Topics to be covered include cohort definition, follow-up and definition of outcomes, fixed and time-dependent exposures, quality control, mixed study designs (nested case-cohort studies), and quality assurance and control.
The course will also cover the basic analytic methods appropriate to various types of cohort data, including the application of both non-parametric methods and regression models.
