Epidemiology courses at EpiCentre (Massey University)

The EpiCentre offers seven courses covering various topics related to epidemiology and data analysis. If you wish to receive an MVS endorsed in epidemiology you will need to complete all of these courses and a 60-credit research paper. Courses offered by the EpiCentre are delivered using either a combination of online and face-to-face teaching (118.705, 118.708, 118.716, 118.785, 118.786) or only face-to-face (118.706 & 118.854). All of the face-to-face teaching is held in Palmerston North, New Zealand. Attending these workshops is compulsory for all courses except for the 118.785 Principles of Veterinary Epidemiology and 118.786 Applied Veterinary Epidemiology. Key information about the courses can be found in the table below.
