27th Intensive Course in Applied Epidemiology - Monday 2nd to Friday 6th March 2020, The Sir Duncan Rice Library University of Aberdeen

We are very proud of the course’s long history and next year sees the 27th incarnation, and the 14th in Aberdeen since its move from Manchester.  The course is pitched at a level equivalent to an Epidemiology module in an MSc / MPH course and, although a background in medicine / healthcare / health research is assumed, no prior knowledge of epidemiology is expected.  The course has four streams:

  • Disease measurement;
  • Study design;
  • Methodology; and
  • Key skills

and we illustrate concepts using examples across several clinical areas.  The course features a faculty with an international reputation, all working in arthritis and musculoskeletal health, although the course covers concepts and methods common to all chronic disease epidemiology.

Brief information:

  • Dates:   Monday 2nd to Friday 6th March, 2020
  • Venue: Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen
  • Cost:
    • £950, includes all course materials, refreshments / lunch, and transport between course venue (university campus) and Aberdeen city centre (for recommended and other hotels).
    • £800, if booked by 30th November 2019.
    • Bursary places are available – see website for details.

Although accommodation is no longer included in the course fee, we have arranged a discounted rate at Aberdeen’s Jurys Inn hotel (www.jurysinns.com/hotels/aberdeen).  A link to the booking site will be e-mailed to you, after booking the course.

Further information is available from www.abdn.ac.uk/icae, download the Course Flyer, or please contact the course administrator with any queries, at epidemiology@abdn.ac.uk.

NIHR - Allied Health Professionals in Research Celebration Event - Thursday 3rd October 2019, Congress Centre London

Celebrate Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) in research with the National Institute for Health Research

AHPs represent the third largest professional workforce in health and social care — their contributions are critical to the development and delivery of high quality, patient centred clinical research.


AHPs in Research: Amplifying Impact will bring together AHPs already research active or looking to get involved in research.


NIHR are delighted to announce some eminent keynote speakers:

Dr Louise Wood, Director of Science, Research and Evidence, Department of Health and Social Care

Professor Hugh McKenna, Dean of Medical School Development, Ulster University, from the Research Excellence Framework Advisory Panel

Along with workshops, posters and case studies, together we will focus on and celebrate:

The changing face of research

The changing face of healthcare and the importance of research, linking with the NHS Long Term Plan

Current impact, and widening our appreciation of ways to demonstrate impact

Click here for further information and to register.

We will be looking for poster submissions to demonstrate how you have been working in new ways or have changed the way you are are able to interact with patients and researchers. This exhibit is an opportunity to share learning with colleagues and peers from across the community. You will have the chance to get feedback from a broad range of attendees, build your network and develop your presentation skills.
