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 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.

My story: Sairah Lai Fa Chen

Being an active EPINOR member from the University of Tromsø made it possible for me to attend a one-week long course on new statistical methods for causal inference (MF9570) at the University of Oslo in November 2019. It was a fantastic, hefty teaching of counterfactuals and mediation analysis.

My story: Marie Hella Lindberg

I was fortunate enough to attend a short course in policy evaluation methods organised by the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (Cemmap) at the University College of London from the 14th to the 17th of January 2020. This was all thanks to a grant from Epinor.


“Statistical analysis with missing data using multiple imputation and inverse probability weighting”

On June 17 – June 16, 2019, I had the opportunity to visit London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and attend the Short Course “Statistical analysis with missing data using multiple imputation and inverse probability weighting”. This course was a nice birthday present from EPINOR.
