Systematic Review course

An intensive four-day course to introduce you to the necessary skills to complete a systematic review.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our Cardiff systematic review course. More details will be made available in the coming weeks.

Develop an understanding of the systematic review process through this practical and highly interactive course, with a range of discussion, group and hands-on sessions.

"Very accomplished lecturers, informal style, and high quality content. Practical details – critical appraisal very well taught. Very good food and great for vegetarians."
