Forskarutbildningskursernas omfattning och uppläggning varierar. Vissa kurser ges i
form av föreläsningar eller seminarier under dagtid eller kvällstid. Sådana
deltidskurser kan utsträckas under en större del av terminen. Andra kurser ges som
heltidskurser och omfattar då vanligen såväl föreläsningar som laborativa moment
och demonstrationer under en begränsad tid.

Om en planerad kurs ska ges eller inte beror på antalet sökande till kursen. Beslut om
att en kurs inte ska ges fattas av kursledare och ordföranden i Rådet för utbildning på
forskarnivå gemensamt.

Qualitative research is characterized by a wide range of approaches and methods of analysis.
This course covers basic concepts in qualitative analysis in the field of public health and
provides practical application for different methods. We will review common features of
qualitative data analysis approaches including the conceptual basis, steps of the process, and
tools for interpretation. Special attention will be given to thematic analysis. This course is not
dependent on specialized theory, and most appropriate for researchers who are in the
beginning stages of conducting qualitative research.
Participants are welcome to use their own data in the course.

Contents of the course

This course is designed as an intensive, hands-on learning experience that will foster the
development of basic skills in multilevel analysis with a focus on fundamental
epidemiological concepts and interpretations rather than statistical or mathematical
formulae. It starts with a description of why multilevel models are necessary if the data have
a hierarchical structure. It then covers the basic theory of two level models (intercept and
random slopes) with emphasis on modeling strategies. Next it explains how multilevel
models can be applied to analyze data when the outcome is continuous (linear regression)
and when the outcome is dichotomous (logistic regression). Further topics include defining
area-level variables and sample size calculation.

Denna kurs bygger på intensiv, praktisk tillämpning med målet att främja utvecklingen av
grundläggande färdigheter i flernivåanalys med fokus på grundläggande epidemiologiska
begrepp och tolkningar snarare än statistiska och matematiska formler. En introduktion till
varför flernivåmodeller är nödvändiga om uppgifterna har en hierarkisk struktur inleder
kursen. Kursinnehållet omfattar därefter den grundläggande teorin för två-nivå-modeller
(intercept och random slopes) med tonvikt på modelleringsstrategier; hur flernivåmodeller
kan tillämpas för att analysera data när utfallsvariablerna är kontinuerliga (linjär regression)
och när de är dikotoma (logistisk regression). Ytterligare teman är att definiera området
nivåvariabler och beräkning av stickprovsstorlek.

This course is an introduction to philosophy of science and common concepts and theories
used in research, corresponding to national goals. The course gives an insight in the variation
of methods used concept at the Medical Faculty including quantitative and qualitative
methods.

The educational format is a mixture of plenary lectures, group discussion, participant’s own
presentations and an assignment to work with in two steps, before and during the course.
During the week we will have some presentations of the students’ own research projects.
Using the variety as point of departure, lectures on philosophy of science will give different
perspectives of knowledge in medical research. Generic knowledge, research as part of
society and how to communicate research will be in focus. Later lectures focusing on
different in research methods used in pre- and clinical research is presented. Gender,
equality and the importance of research in society will be discussed.

Contents of the course

This is an advanced course in scientific writing. To succeed as a scientist the ability to write
scientific papers is a central and very important skill. The aim of the course is that students
should acquire tools and learn the craft to become skilled scientific writers. It includes the
three components of effective communication: content, structure and language. We present
the purpose and significance of the major general structures of a scientific paper. Here we
highlight why an article must contain the topic of the research, a knowledge gap, a clear
research question, a description of methods, results, discussion and conclusions. We present
different narrative techniques and analyse how they can be used for better flow and
continuity within and between sections. We develop writing skills down to the detailed level
of internal structures of paragraphs and sentences.
We meet once a week for six weeks. Each meeting starts with a short lecture focused on
scientific writing in practice and based on experience with, for example, journals and editors.
Then we make a short introduction to the writing exercise and split into small writing groups
of three students. Each student has prepared a text, or revised the text according to the
specific exercise, and the other students in the group have commented on the result. Together
the students analyze, discuss, and revise the texts to further improve them. The exercises
derive from the book Writing Science, which from chapter to chapter provides new tools to
better tell the story. Each week, we cover three chapters and the corresponding exercises.
Finally we reunite, summarize, conclude, and present the exercise for the next meeting.

The course will give an overview of the foundations of eHealth and Medical Informatics
including research methodologies. The purpose of the course is to provide the student the
opportunity to apply new knowledge in theme discussions and explore, partly hands-on, the
potentials in developing and applying digital tools, which are relevant to their research topic.
The following themes will be included: ICT-based interventions; design and development of
”behaviour change systems” and decision-support systems; the professional’s perspective:
change of work practices when introducing new digital tools; and the citizen’s perspective on
digital aids for health, e.g., ethics, equality, equity, autonomy, self-management.

Inequities in health have got more and more attention, both in the national and global
agendas. However, there are different opinions both regarding the definition of equity, and
regarding which polices that are appropriate and justified to increase equity. This course
introduces the theories which so far have been most influential in health care and public
health – utilitarianism, Rawl’s theory of justice, communitarianism and feminism. The
course investigates how these theories have influenced both research and policy-making.

It is desirable to found public health policies on best possible evidence. Almost no potential
policy can meet the conditions necessary for randomized control trials. On the other hand,
too low evaluations standards can imply that ineffective or even harmful policies are
implemented. Research aimed at a foundation for policy-making further requires an
understanding of the decision-making process in public organizations. Decision-makers have
to balance more or less legitimate interest of different stakeholders, and even make decisions
when the evidence is far from perfect. They commonly act under economic and legitimate
constraints, such as respect for human rights. Frameworks for compiling available evidence
from different sources such as realistic synthesis and Markov-modelling will be presented
and discussed. Most of the practical experience of compiling different aspects of health
technologies can be found in the health technology assessment literature. Concrete and
timely examples will be studied.

This course will provide a broad overview on how organisms including humans forage, and
seek nutrients, regulate appetite and the physiological consequences of over-feeding and
starvation. It will also cover how the gut microbiome promotes health and how lifespan is
regulated. Experimental work in model organisms will be discussed and signalling pathways
related to feeding and metabolism will be molecularly defined.
At the completion of the course, students should be able to describe how appetite is
regulated and the molecular mechanisms that lie behind the choices of food sources
organisms make. Students should understand and be able to explain the physiological
consequences of both starvation and overeating, and how nutritional status affects eating
behaviour and metabolism. They should further be able to give concrete examples of how
the intestinal microbiome affects health. Students should be able to summarize how
research with model organisms has led to an understanding of the signalling pathways that
regulate appetite, and also be able to compare the mechanisms that regulate feeding
behaviour in different animals. At the completion of the course, the students will be
expected to be able to read and critique research papers within the field.

The course is intended for Master students in Dietetics and PhD students in Biology or
Medicine.

Contents of the course
This course is an introduction to human rights frameworks, gender and intersectional
theories and their connections with health, health policies and health systems. The main
objectives of the course are: to make the participants aware of the different facets of the
linkages between health, health care, gender, social determinants and human rights; to
develop the knowledge necessary for critical analysis of the existing international and
national policies affecting global health issues and the right to health; and to acquaint the
participants with tools that can be employed in order to mainstream and address issues
concerning health in policy making.
The educational format is a mixture of plenary lectures, individual reading, group
discussions, participants’ own presentations and an assignment to be submitted.

Content of the course

Socioeconomic inequalities in health are a major challenge for health policy. Monitoring the
changes in the magnitude of these inequalities is essential to assess the effectiveness of health
policy interventions. There is a wide variety of summary measures for the magnitude of
socioeconomic inequalities in health. These measures choose different perspectives, and it is
recommended to assess the magnitude of health inequalities based on a set of diverse measures
that together cover all the relevant perspectives. Both simple and sophisticated summary
measures are available for each of these perspectives.

This course is designed as an intensive, hands-on learning experience that will foster the
development of theoretical knowledge and basic skills in calculating and interpreting different
health inequality measurements. The different measurements included in the course are: the
relative index of inequality and the concentration index, the principal component analysis
applied to socioeconomic status, the measurement of intersectionality, how to conduct a
decomposition analysis and propensity matching score. Further topic includes methodological
issues when carrying out life course studies and the advantages of multilevel analysis.

Previous knowledge on biostatistics and epidemiology are pre-requisite for taking this
course.

Expected learning outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
 Differentiate various measures of health inequalities and judge their weaknesses and
strengths.
 Understand the theoretical concepts behind the health inequality measurements.
 Calculate the measures of health inequalities presented in the course.
 Interpret the results of the health inequality measurements.

Contents of the course

The goal of the course is to give the students an opportunity to develop skills in oral
presentation, with focus on presentations at conferences. To make this possible, the course
includes sessions about rhetorics and body language. We will work with Power point
presentations, presentation using the headline technique and poster presentations to give the
students the opportunity to develop an array of presentation skills. There will be several
opportunities to practice these methods and the teachers and students will give feedback to the
different presentations that each student will perform. There will also be opportunities to learn
how to respond to feedback and how to use it to improve presentation skills.

The course is built on John Dewey´s concept “learning by doing” and David Kolb´s theories
about experiential learning.

The course focuses on the basic principles and steps of qualitative data analysis. Grounded
Theory method is one of the interpretation techniques used in the course. This is aimed at
generating concepts and theories through qualitative data collection and analysis.
Participants will perform the basic steps of analyzing qualitative data (teacher-provided as
well as their own). Moreover, participants will examine and discuss critically various
examples of scientific studies that employ qualitative data analysis. In addition, this course
looks more closely into Grounded Theory method in relation to qualitative methodology
more broadly.
