CTU Bern (Clinical Trials Unit)

New Certificate of Advanced Studies in Clinical Epidemiology

The University of Bern offers a new Certificate of Advanced Studies in Clinical Epidemiology. Participants will learn the necessary methods to plan, conduct and communicate clinical research projects.

Clinical epidemiology is a sub-specialty of epidemiology which studies both the distribution and determinants of health-related events in the population. The CAS also covers how to use biostatistical methods for data analysis including using a data analysis software.

The course modules are organized by the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine in close collaboration with other institutes of the University of Bern conducting clinical research including CTU Bern.

The CAS comprises approximately 10 course modules and involves approximately 350-450 hours of work and leads to the acquisition of 15 ECTS points. Details concerning the modules are still under development.
