The Epidemiological Committee launched a new educational activity at the 7th Congress of ECCO in Barcelona 2012: The EpiCom Workshop’s focus is on the design and execution of epidemiological trials in IBD. The primary objective of the workshop is to explain the design and methodology of epidemiological studies. The course is designed for specialists and junior scientists with a special interest in epidemiology.
Participants of the workshop go home with full knowledge of how to set up a feasible trial, how to handle biologic material, and how to deal with ethical requirements as of today.
The EpiCom Workshop is a biannual event that took place once again at the 15th Congress of ECCO 2020.
Upcoming EpiCom Workshop
The 6th EpiCom Workshop will take place in 2022.
