Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology

Can mindfulness support people in dealing with chronic disease? What is the relationship between depressive symptoms and cardiovascular disease? How do people function at work having survived cancer?

Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology is a selective two-year research master that focuses on these questions. You will study the reciprocal relationship between the psychological and physical health of adults and children. The central idea is that psychological, biological and social aspects all play a role in any physical condition.

You will be encouraged to engage in research throughout the programme where a strong focus lies on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of somatic and mental health problems. Moreover, CPE is situated in the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), which means that you can benefit from a unique and interesting clinical setting. Classes are taught in small groups by leading scientists.

You will have the opportunity to choose additional courses to suit your particular interests. Your individual development as a researcher is central to the programme. You will be conducting research side by side with scientists who are leading experts in their field. CPE was rated first in its category in the Dutch Higher Education Guide 2017!
