Veterinary Epidemiology

As one of the very few online medical courses in veterinary epidemiology that is available, this course is highly suitable for veterinary researchers with an interest in epidemiology, who want to understand the concepts of epidemiology and apply these concepts in data analysis. It is taught by epidemiologists from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and forms part of the MSc Epidemiology program of the UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University.

Learn the basic principles of veterinary epidemiology

The aim of this 12-weeks course is to make you familiar with all the basic principles of veterinary epidemiology. In every learning unit, a specific veterinary epidemiology topic will be discussed, illustrated and combined with practical data analysis tasks and/or reading assignments, for an interactive learning experience.

Concepts and data analysis

This course consists of two parts. The first part will make you familiar with the concepts of veterinary epidemiology illustrated by basic computer practicals. The second part will teach you epidemiological data analysis in more depth, by using open-source statistical software R. The first part of this course can also be followed as a separate course. Please visit the course page Concepts of Veterinary Epidemiology for more information about the possibilities.
