Basel Institute of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

The Basel Institute for Clinical Epidemiology is an affiliated institute of the University of Basel.
It was founded in 2001 and is integrated into the Department of Internal Medicine of the University Hospital Basel.

Our mission

As an academic institution our mission is to advance knowledge in evaluative sciences related to health and health care through interdisciplinary research, to facilitate the transfer of research information to health care practitioners, and to provide advice on clinical research methods. Our goal is to improve health care and the use of resources in the health care system we serve.

Activities

Research:

Interdisciplinary projects initiated by our affiliated partner, own projects and stimulated by our institution with partners within the University Hospital.

Services:

We act as a resource and methods centre for the design, execution and analysis of local or national clinical trials and epidemiologic studies. The Institute aims at encouraging and facilitating clinical research among members of the medical and allied health professional staff at the University Hospital Basel. We collaborate with other national and international universities.

Education:

The Institute organises and participates in national and international workshops on evidence-based practice / health care for those who wish to learn the necessary skills. Other workshops are designed for educators who already understand the basics of evidence-based practice and wish to do a better job as the role models and teachers of evidence-based practice.
