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.
On January 15th – 17 th, 2018, I attended the Swiss Epidemiology Winter School in Wengen, Switzerland. I took the course ‘Statistical Analysis with Missing Data Using Multiple Imputation and Inverse Probability Weighting’ taught by professors from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University of Bern.
This year from 5th to 28th of January I had an opportunity to visit Australia and took part in collaborative research between Arctic University of Norway and Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute (Melbourne). EPINOR funded this relevant for me scientific activity. My Ph.D research focused on an understanding of the underlying aetiology of high cardiovascular mortality in Russia and its comparison with Norway.

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).

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.
