Please join us Tuesday, June 15 (11 am ET) for an OHDSI Community Call focused on Professional Development. We will be opening four breakout sessions that focus on:
• Clinical Epidemiology (Moderators: Talita Duarte-Salles and Dani Prieto-Alhambra)
• Information/Data Management (Moderators: Maxim Moinat and Mui Van Zandt)
• Open-Source Software Development (Moderators: Greg Klebanov and Kees van Bochove)
• Statistical Methods (Moderators: Yong Chen and Marc Suchard)
Our breakout sessions are meant to be open conversations in these areas. While each room will have at least one moderator, we are hopeful to have as many people as possible engage in conversation, by asking questions, sharing suggestions, providing guidance, etc. Everybody is invited!
Many of you will have the calendar link in your OHDSI Teams environment. If not, you will need the specific meeting link to access the community call; it will also be posted in the main OHDSI Teams environment. As always, if you can’t make it, the recordings will be posted to both our Community Calls page and the General OHDSI Teams recordings folder.
The next APAC Community Call will be June 17 and will focus on OHDSI Projects. Professor Lei Liu of Fudan University will provide a presentation on “Applying the OMOP CDM to Hepatobiliary Clinical Research Database at Zhongshan Hospital. Also, Mui Van Zandt will lead a discussion about collecting attitudinal information from the community to support planning and activities. This call will be held in MS Teams; if you don’t have access to this team, please fill out this form.
