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.
It is time for the sixth EPINOR Annual Meeting. This time in Trondheim 12 - 13 November 2018 Topic of the year: What are the fundamentals of Stata for epidemiologic research?
Dear EPINOR Friend, here comes the latest news from us. Be sure to read the article of current interest - Successful PhD outcome, by our International Advisor Professor Henrik Toft Sørensen. The newsletter starts with an introductory interview of Toft Sørensen.
BiostatEpi’s summer school on modern methods in biostatistics and epidemiology, in Cison di Valmarino, Treviso, Italy
On June 10 – June 16, 2018, I was lucky to attend the second course week of the annual summer school hosted by BiostatEpi, at a castle in northern Italy. My two select classes were ‘Longitudinal Data Analysis’ and ‘Joint Modelling of Longitudinal and Survival Data’. The stay was made possible through funding by EPINOR.
From 11th-15th of June I attended the course “Introduction to multi-level modeling” at Epidemiology and Population Health Summer Institute at Columbia University (EPIC). The summer institute provides courses on a wide range of epidemiological topics for those interested in public health.

Dear EPINOR Friend, here comes the latest news from us. We start with the pictures from Bergen (above) and Oslo semester start meetings. Be inspired by the recent stories from our members who have attended courses or had a research stay abroad. Happy reading!
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.
