Contents of the course
This course is designed as an intensive, hands-on learning experience that will foster the
development of basic skills in multilevel analysis with a focus on fundamental
epidemiological concepts and interpretations rather than statistical or mathematical
formulae. It starts with a description of why multilevel models are necessary if the data have
a hierarchical structure. It then covers the basic theory of two level models (intercept and
random slopes) with emphasis on modeling strategies. Next it explains how multilevel
models can be applied to analyze data when the outcome is continuous (linear regression)
and when the outcome is dichotomous (logistic regression). Further topics include defining
area-level variables and sample size calculation.
Denna kurs bygger på intensiv, praktisk tillämpning med målet att främja utvecklingen av
grundläggande färdigheter i flernivå analys med fokus på grundläggande epidemiologiska
begrepp och tolkningar snarare än statistiska och matematiska formler. En introduktion till
varför multilevel modeller är nödvändiga om uppgifterna har en hierarkisk struktur inleder
kursen. Kursinnehållet omfattar därefter den grundläggande teorin för två-nivå modeller
(intercept och random slopes) med tonvikt på modellerings strategier; hur flernivå modeller
kan tillämpas för att analysera data när utfallsvariablerna är kontinuerliga (linjär regression)
och när de är dikotoma (logistisk regression). Ytterligare teman är att definiera området nivå
variabler och beräkning av stickprovsstorlek.

Climate change is a major global threat to public health. Therefore, scientific methods and
frameworks for research on climate change and health are of great importance. In this course
scientific methods relating to climate change health impacts, climate change adaptation, and
emissions reduction (i.e., mitigation) will be addressed. Course participants will learn
technical concepts concerning attribution of risk/cause and effect; dealing with uncertainty;
managing unusually large temporal and spatial scales (e.g. meteorology, physical geography
and health); methods for climate change adaptation, such as early warnings systems and
campaigns; Climate change policy and research dissemination. Also, co-benefits and
mitigation strategies, such as life cycle analysis, within the health sector will be covered. The
course will constitute lectures, practical exercises, seminars, plus a student project.

Contents of the course
The course gives a brief overview of the basic principles of grounded theory and the
development of grounded theory over time. The main focus is on social constructivist
grounded theory and situational analysis, which are well suited for systematic and flexible
analysis of qualitative data in health- and social sciences. In particular, both approaches
provide researchers with tools to analyze multiple, complex and even contradictory social
processes and positions. After completing the course participants are expected to be able to
independently carry out a grounded theory analysis, based on the guiding principles for a
social constructivist grounded theory and/or situation analysis. Participants will also be able
to describe and discuss how the two methods of analysis relate to each other. The course
consists of lectures and group work, with a strong emphasis on seminars, group work and
individual assignments based on participants' own research.
Participants must have previously met at least 7.5 credits in qualitative method.

Kursens innehåll
I kursen ges den studerande grundläggande kunskap om gällande regelverk vid klinisk
forskning; Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Vidare ges en orienterande information om de lagar
och förordningar som reglerar medicinsk forskning. Inspektioner och audits av kliniska
läkemedelsprövningar. Efter genomförd kursdag får den deltagande ett certifikat som bevis
på erhållen kunskap om GCP och som möjliggör medverkan vid klinisk läkemedelsprövning/
klinisk forskning som projektledare/deltagare.
Om den forskarstuderande går denna teoretiska kurs (för GCP-behörighet) under klinisk
forskarutbildning ska de praktiska momenten inom GCP såsom färdigställande av
studieplan, patientinformation och etikansökan inkluderas som egna individuella
lärandemål och examineras av examinator. Dessa moment ligger dock då inte till grund för
kurspoäng, till skillnad från den mer omfattande kursen i GCP, som motsvarar 4,5 hp och
som innehåller examination av de praktiska momenten inom ramen för kursen.

This course is an introduction to philosophy of science and common concepts and theories
used in research, corresponding to national goals. The course gives an insight in the variation
of methods used concept at the Medical Faculty including quantitative and qualitative
methods.
The educational format is a mixture of plenary lectures, group discussion, participant’s own
presentations and an assignment to work with in two steps, before and during the course.
During the week we will have some presentations of the students’ own research projects.
Using the variety as point of departure, lectures on philosophy of science will give different
perspectives of knowledge in medical research. Generic knowledge, research as part of
society and how to communicate research will be in focus. Later lectures focusing on
different in research methods used in pre- and clinical research is presented. Gender,
equality and the importance of research in society will be discussed.

Contents of the course
(example)
This is an advanced course in scientific writing. To succeed as a scientist the ability to write
scientific papers is a central and very important skill. The aim of the course is that students
should acquire tools and learn the craft to become skilled scientific writers. It includes the
three components of effective communication: content, structure and language.
24
We present the purpose and significance of the major general structures of a scientific paper.
Here we highlight why an article must contain the topic of the research, a knowledge gap, a
clear research question, a description of methods, results, discussion and conclusions. We
present different narrative techniques and analyse how they can be used for better flow and
continuity within and between sections. We develop writing skills down to the detailed level
of internal structures of paragraphs and sentences.
We meet once a week for six weeks. Each meeting starts with a short lecture focused on
scientific writing in practice and based on experience with, for example, journals and editors.
Then we make a short introduction to the writing exercise and split into small writing groups
of three students. Each student has prepared a text, or revised the text according to the
specific exercise, and the other students in the group have commented on the result. Together
the students analyze, discuss, and revise the texts to further improve them. The exercises
derive from the book Writing Science, which from chapter to chapter provides new tools to
better tell the story. Each week, we cover three chapters and the corresponding exercises.
Finally we reunite, summarize, conclude, and present the exercise for the next meeting.

Contents of the course
Inequities in health have got more and more attention, both in the national and global
agendas. However, there are different opinions both regarding the definition of equity, and
regarding which polices that are appropriate and justified to increase equity. This course
introduces the theories which so far have been most influential in health care and public
health – utilitarianism, Rawl’s theory of justice and feminism. The course investigates how
these theories have influenced both research and policy-making.

The focus in the course is on the understanding of statistical reasoning in analysis of data
and research. The measurement process is discussed in the context of statistical model
choice and basic data management is introduced. Regression analysis is a statistical
technique used for analyzing the relationship between response and explanatory variables
and during the main part of the course different types of regression analyses are described
and discussed. Initially, a short repetition of Linear regression is given and then some other
regression models are introduced; Logistic regression where the response is binary, Poisson
regression where the response is “counts” and Cox regression where the response is “time to
event”. Medical and epidemiological research articles will be discussed with focus on the
statistical methodology. During the course theoretical parts will be illustrated with
discussion exercises and computer exercises.
