Course organiser: Jim Todd (Dept of Epi and Biostatistics, KCMU College)
This 2 year course, leading to a Masters qualification, is designed to cover the basic concepts of epidemiology and many advanced techniques in Biostatistics. The successful graduate will be prepared for a job in research, or in an academic institution. There is a shortage of trained BioStatisticians in East Africa, and this course is designed to help train personnel to fill that gap. Much of the course material has been adapted from courses run in LSHTM, and some modules are delivered by lecturers from LSHTM.
Applicants must have a first degree in medicine, or statistics, with a good knowledge of science, and scientific research. The course is open to all nationalities on an equal basis, without discrimination on sex, age or religion. International applications are welcome.
