32nd ANNUAL SUMMER SESSION IN EPIDEMIOLOGY & BIOSTATISTICS

May 8–June 29, 2017

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. Courses are offered over one, two, or four weeks. Please refer to www.mcgill.ca/epi-biostat-occh/academic-programs/summer for schedules and course descriptions.

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 either English or 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. Registration is via Minerva, McGill's web-based registration system.

Graduate students from other Quebec universities wishing to take courses in our department can register via BCI (Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire, previously known as CREPUQ); please see www.mcgill.ca/epi-biostat-occh/academic-programs/summer for detailed information on registration and course offerings.

Students from universities outside Quebec (but within Canada) wishing to take courses in our department can register using the Canadian Universities Graduate Transfer Agreement form; please see www.mcgill.ca/epi-biostat-occh/academic-programs/summer for the form and detailed information on registration and course offerings.

Health professionals and others not seeking academic credits can obtain a Professional Interest Certificate. Tuition fees vary; please see www.mcgill.ca/epi-biostat-occh/academic-programs/summer for detailed information on registration and course offerings.
