Bristol Medical School Short Courses in Population Health Sciences

Population Health Sciences offer a comprehensive programme of high quality intensive short courses in epidemiology, medical statistics, qualitative research, health economics, appraisal and synthesis of research, and health protection.

Our courses range in duration from one to five days. They are aimed at University staff and postgraduate research students, public health specialists, health-care professionals and members of the pharmaceutical and medical device industry.

Our current programme of short courses

All courses run online, unless otherwise specified. Due to demand some courses run multiple times within an academic year. Course titles appended with 'A' or 'B' indicate multiple runs of a stand-alone course. Click on a course title for more information.
