Participant profile and application


ECTE is intended for medics, nurses, biologists, anthropologists, health program managers, health administrators and other professionals working in the health sector in tropical countries or with an interest in public health in these settings. The course is appropriate for those without formal training in epidemiology or statistics; however, ECTE is intensive and applicants should have a strong command of English and a reasonable understanding of statistics.


Maximum number of participants: 30


Applications meeting the required profile are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, until the maximum number of participants (30) is reached. Applicants are usually informed of their selection within three weeks of application. Applications received after the deadline is passed would only be considered if there were vacant positions. Please keep in mind that the course is often full before the deadline.
