Course material


For the exercises every student is requested to bring his / her own laptop. If you do not have access to a laptop please contact us on beforehand so that we can try to find a solution.

During the course the book “Veterinary Epidemiologic Research” (Dohoo, Martin, Stryhn) will be used. Besides that several free-ware software packets will be demonstrated and used. As the statistical analysis course is concerned students are encouraged to bring their own software packets if you are familiar working with this. If you have not been working with a specific software packet before we will provide you access to SPSS. As the quantitative risk assessment is concerned we will provide you (shortly before the start of the course) a link to @Risk free trial version to be installed at your computer before the start of the course.

All courses will be given in English. The course is recognized by the Doctoral School life science and medicine (DS LSM) of the Ghent University. The course can be included as one of the three specialist courses in the minimum set of activities. All PhD students that are member of the DS LSM receive a € 400 co-funding by the doctoral school.
