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. 

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.
