Doctoral courses

Health Metrics is the major provider of research training in quantitative medical and health research at the Sahlgrenska Academy. Each year Health Metrics provides hundreds of PhD students with the opportunity to boost their knowledge in medical statistics, applied health economics and epidemiologic methods.


Each semester, we provide the popular courses on the foundations of medical statistics

  • Medicinsk statistik 1 (svenska)
  • Medical statistics 1 (english)
  • Medical statistics 2

Apart from these courses, we give a couple more specialized, thematic courses, that varies for semester to semester.

  • Regression models for register studies
  • Epideimology and causal inference 2
  • Health economics evaluation methods
  • Quasi-experimental methods in health research

Future courses

We are continuously discussing topics for courses to offer in future semesters. If you are a doctoral student and interested in a specific statistics or health economics course, please send a Notice of interest and let us know.

You apply to the courses during the regular application period of the PhD Education Program at the Sahlgrenska Academy's course catalogue.
