Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health


May 4–June 26, 2015

The Annual Summer Session in Epidemiology and Biostatistics offers health professionals the opportunity to gain familiarity with the principles of epidemiology and biostatistics. It also offers graduate students from McGill and other universities the opportunity to acquire academic credits and thereby accelerate coursework during a Summer term.

The 2015 Summer Session in Epidemiology and Biostatistics will introduce a new course on Introduction to Health Informatics (EBIP 645: Substantive Epidemiology 5), as well as offer courses within the themes listed on the website. Courses are offered over one, two, and four weeks; please refer to the website for schedules and course descriptions: www.mcgill.ca/epi-biostat-occh/summer.

The language of instruction is English (unless otherwise stated), and students are advised that fluency in English is essential to benefit from the courses offered. However, students may submit their assignments and examinations in French.

The courses are intended for health professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists, etc.) or professionals in related fields (e.g., industrial hygienists, environmental specialists, urban planners, engineers), as well as social and basic scientists.

Academic credits are available to graduate students, and to residents and fellows from residency training programs at McGill.

Health professionals and others not seeking academic credits can obtain a Professional Interest Certificate. Tuition fees vary. Please contact the Student Affairs Office at:
