Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School). Special rules apply for research year students enrolled at Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. All other participants must pay the course fee.
Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student, you will be placed on the waiting list for the course until enrollment deadline. After the deadline of enrollment, available seats will be allocated to students on the waiting list.

This 3-day course will focus on current research, risk factors, upcoming issues, nationwide databases, relevant cohorts and methodological approaches in the epidemiology of reproductive health. The three day course will be structured around lectures based in the newest/most relevant research papers in the field covering descriptive and analytical epidemiology.

Course title
Epidemiologic issues relating fertility research

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will:
a. Have gained insight into the epidemiology of female and male reproduction
b. Understand the genetic, behavioural, environmental and biologic risk factors for adverse outcomes, and understand the biologic mechanisms for observed epidemiologic associations.
