Essentials of Health Research

It is a meticulously designed course to learn the methods for conducting biomedical research.
This course will cover the essential concepts in epidemiology and bio-statistics related to methods of health research.
It will also provide an overview of steps and principles for designing research studies (bio-medical and health research) among human participants.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course, every learner should be able to shape their research ideas into an appropriately written research protocol using the fundamentals of epidemiology, biostatistics and ethics of human research.
They should also be able to conduct and manage their research studies efficiently.

Learning Material

The learning materials include online sessions, power point presentations and MCQ based assignments for each session.
