Epidemiology Winter School 2015 in Wengen - registration now open!


The Winter School takes place in January during the week following the International Lauberhorn ski race, when Wengen is calm, with few people on the slopes. Students stay on site and work hard in the mornings. They then have an extended break to review course materials, catch up on emails or (more likely) go skiing or snowboarding. We reconvene at 5 pm for computer or practical sessions.

We offer 8 courses in 2015 which run for 3 days, either from Monday to Wed or Thurs to Sat, during the week of 19-24 January, 2015. Each course earns 1.5 ECTS.
