Testimonials

Public health practitioners love our courses, saying:.

“Really tailored to the needs of epidemiologists. (Field Epidemiology Trainee)”

“The best online training I have ever had. (UK Health Agency epidemiologist)”

“The Applied Epi team has created a one-of-a-kind resource to elevate and expediate the work of field epidemiologists!”

“This course was 100 times better than what was offered during my MSc at a top-tier university.”

“This course put me lightyears ahead in only 5 days! (Epidemiologist, Save the Children)”

“This course addressed the problems on my mind, those day-to-day challenges. Other R courses are far too fast or abstract - this is the first I’ve taken where I actually want to continue!… in 1 hour, we resolved R problems I’ve had for 1 year! (Mentor, Liberia Field Epi Training Program)”

“Inspirational instructors. I cannot recommend highly enough. (Epidemiology team lead)”

“This is one of the most applicable, intense trainings that I’ve done. Every time I’m thinking - I can use this! (US local epidemiologist)”

“This whole experience make me feel quite emotional. In a world that is so inequitable, R is a great equaliser. I feel very empowered by this training. (Epidemiologist, Country of Georgia)”

“I took the Coursera course - this is SO MUCH BETTER. It is so much more tailored to my direct needs. I don’t think like a programmer, I think like an epidemiologst, so this is much more intuitive. (US local epidemiologist)”
