    ...lectures are always given in an interactive format, which allows sufficient communication between students and lecturers. Each student can work with top scientists..

    During my bachelor study in psychology, I was interested in how psychology and medicine can be interacted with each other to help people. It was exactly this interest that led me to choose the Research Master's program Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology, which combined psychology and medicine perfectly. Here in the CPE program, lectures are always given in an interactive format, which allows sufficient communication between students and lecturers. Each student can work with top scientists during the master thesis project and really get to know how to perform scientific research. After finishing the research master program, I started my PhD project in department of health psychology in the UMCG. My PhD project is focused on cancer patients who were receiving psychosocial care in psycho-oncology institutions. I am interested in examining the underlying mechanisms of psychosocial care, for example, how patients' personal resources changed during psychosocial care. Without the Research Master program, this would not have been possible. The CPE program not only offered me the state-of-the-art knowledge in health field, but also provided me necessary skills (i.e., thinking, writing, presenting) to perform research.
