The aim of this course is to introduce the main statistical concepts, methods and models used in the design and analysis of case-control studies.

The course can be completed at any stage of studies.Organized in the autumn term 2017, not every year.

In contrast to clinical trials, case-control studies are observational in nature. In an observational study, the role of the investigator is passive: they observe the individuals and collect relevant data, but do not influence the course of events. This course will provide an introduction to statistical methods appropriate for these types of studies.

Lectures and practicals.


Attendance throughout the seminar and optional assignments = 1 ECTS credit

The course consists of 10 lectures during two days (e.g., first day afternoon lectures and the next day lectures in the morning).
