The Epidemiology Journal Club

Category: Journal Club

Time period:
-

Lecture(s):
ECTS: 1

Every week, 2-3 articles pertaining to one central epidemiological theme will be discussed. The sessions will feature articles selected by the lecturer or the students. A selection of articles may center around a common aspect of public health or the use of an epidemiological method. Students will direct the discussion and the other students participate in critiquing the articles for epidemiological issues (e.g. study design, analysis, writing, sampling). Furthermore, we will focus on policy and programmatic implications for improving health as well as clinical applications as appropriate.

The Epidemiology Journal Club is an environment where everyone’s thoughts and analysis are welcomed. All students are encouraged to read the article(s) and consistently and actively contribute to the discussion to hopefully spark some interesting and lively (and maybe even “fun”) debate. Each group member brings his or her own expertise and experience to the discussion, and we encourage all opinions and ideas to be shared among the group in an environment of mutual respect.
