EPINOR -National research school in population based epidemiology
EPINOR is established to improve the quality and capacity of the Norwegian PhD education in epidemiological theory, methodology, and implementation of new statistical methods. The school is a cooperation between the universities in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim , Stavanger and Tromsø, and it is open to all PhD-students in Norway that match EPINORs scientific profile. We offer funding of PhD students activities, and various forms of support to course teachers and supervisors.

In November EPINOR held a pilot junior supervisor seminar in collaboration with BioCat (national research school in biocatalysis). The attandants at the seminar were senior Phd-students (with academic ambitions), post docs and assistant professors. In total we were 20 attandants from EPINOR, BioCat and the Dept of Chemistry (UiT).
The course “HEL-8032” is scheduled for April 24-27 2018. 3 ECTS at completion. The application deadline is February 1. 2018 for external applicants. We have room for 25 students, first come, first served.
Jeg deltok på Workshop on Causal Inference in Health Registry Research på UiO. Denne workshopen var spredt ut over to halve dager, slik at man kunne reise til Oslo første kursdag, og hjem igjen andre kursdag.

- An Italian story from a Norwegian ginger In October I attended the course “Introduction to Epidemiology”. The course was held at Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome and covered important epidemiologic topics with the aim to provide participants with insight into the principles and techniques used to produce and interpret epidemiologic data. The course was held by Kenneth J. Rothman and Vera Ehrenstein.
In October 2017, a group of six Phd students set out with the ambitious goal of writing a publishable paper in 9 days. The group consisted of both experienced and novel students from various research-groups. We consider this pilot project to be a success, both because we achieved what we set out to do, and due to the learning experience of planning, delegating tasks, applying for money and working as a team.
