2017-2018 Academic Year
Provides an overview of current research in the Department and in the field of epidemiology, and offers an opportunity for discussion and clarification of epidemiologic methods as applied in research settings.
Each week, articles with a clinical epidemiology focus are selected by different presenters. Both students and faculty members participate in leading discussions of the papers. Often, the Welch Center Research Seminar (Journal Club) becomes a forum for the discussion of the appropriate use of statistical analytic methods for various study designs.
Clinical Research Grand Rounds provides an opportunity for Welch Center faculty and guest scientists to present the results of ongoing, planned, and completed epidemiological, clinical, and translational research. This weekly conference is open to anyone in the Johns Hopkins Community and is often attended by faculty, trainees, and students from the Schools of Public Health and Medicine. The Welch Center hosts several guest speakers from outside the Center and outside the University each year. Master's and doctoral students in the clinical epidemiology and cardiovascular epidemiology concentrations are required to attend.
