Epi teaching

My teaching in epidemiology ranges from full courses in basic epidemiology to selected epidemiology lectures for evidence based medicine courses. Below, you can find PDF:s made from powerpoint presentations for my lectures I’ve given recently. Under SAS teaching, you can also find some PDF:s from SAS teaching that I’ve done. You may use any documents below freely for your own reference, but please contact me if you wish to use them in any more formal setting.
