Upon completion of this course all participants should be familiar with all basic concepts of veterinary epidemiology, be capable of critically reading and understanding scientific literature and performing basic statistical and epidemiological analyses. Moreover the participants should be ready to design surveillance, analytical or clinical studies and to critically analyze the results. Furthermore the participants will be introduced to several aspects of more advanced epidemiological tools. The course will be thought by different experienced lecturers with ample theoretical and practical knowledge.
