This online course, “Basic Course in Biomedical Research”, is offered by ICMR-National Institute of Epidemiology (ICMR-NIE), Chennai (www.nie.gov.in).
The course will explain the fundamental concepts of research methodology in health. Course materials include video lectures reading/resource materials, example accompaniments, workbooks, lecture handouts and frequently asked questions (based on participant queries from previous cycle). Certification will be done based on lecture wise assignments and a final proctored exam.
Enrollment will open throughout the year and there is no deadline for enrollment/submission of assignments. In the self-paced mode the previous cycle assignment scores will not be considered to register for the proctored exam.
