Number of places



The Better Evaluation of Evidence and Statistics (BEES) Course for 'Getting to Grips with Evidence Based Dermatology' is now in its 20th year. The aims of the course are to help:

a) improve your skills at critical appraisal when reading dermatological literature and 
b) improve your ability to design and participate in clinical research projects.

Is this for you?

The course is taught by Professor Hywel Williams in collaboration with epidemiologists and statisticians from The University of Nottingham.

Dermatological examples are used to illustrate concepts throughout the course. It is a 3-day course which is hard work, but good fun. (Read participant's feedback)

More information

The course uses the principles of epidemiology and statistics such as chance, bias and confounding to provide a framework to achieve these aims. (See programme outline.)

The main taught elements of dermato-epidemiology and statistics are part of the UK specialist trainee curriculum (see the BAD website).

The course may also appeal to consultants who wish to improve their skills at critically appraising published clinical trials and also statistics in general.

Overseas dermatology trainees are always welcome, including those from a veterinary background.
