Omschrijving Epidemiology, the discipline investigating the associations between determinants and health outcomes, is the cornerstone of research in the Medical and Health Sciences. The number of people with a chronic disorder, is rapidly increasing. Concurrently, psychosocial factors are important determinants of the increasing ‘epidemic’ of chronic diseases.
This programme focuses on epidemiology in the area of chronic diseases, with an emphasis on psychosocial factors, including quality of life, public mental health, and psychiatric epidemiology. The curriculum moves from providing basic knowledge of clinical and psychosocial epidemiology in mandatory group-oriented modules to individual Master’s theses programmes with a tailored selection of specialized modules. The programme will be given in close collaboration with important clinical research groups on chronic diseases of the University Medical Center Groningen, including cardiovascular diseases, psychiatric disorders, cancer, diabetes, and pulmonary diseases. At the end of the programme, students have the opportunity to design their own PhD project. Excellent proposals are awarded with a 3 yr PhD position!
