Welcome to the CCE

The Center of Clinical Epidemiology (CCE) at the Institute of Medical Informatics, Biometry, and Epidemiology, University Hospital of Essen, was founded in September 2014 when Andreas Stang, MD, MPH became full professor at the Medical Faculty of University Duisburg-Essen.

The CCE stands for a medicine-oriented epidemiology and commits itself to the German Good Epidemiologic Practice (GEP). It does research especially on topics of clinical epidemiology, i.e. screening, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy.

The CCE is actively teaching epidemiology for medical students and for students of epidemiology. It advises health politicians.
