MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online

This postgraduate program is offered by Utrecht University and University Medical Center Utrecht in cooperation with MSc Epidemiology and via the online platform of Elevate Health.

This globally oriented program focuses on competencies that you need as an epidemiologist: it offers plenty of attention for research but not just as a researcher - it also enables you to judge research and implement results from research.

The program is designed for professionals already working in the field who would like to further develop their research skills. The program also provides a strong foundation for scientists starting a career in clinical or epidemiological research.

The aim of the program is to provide you with extensive knowledge and practical skills in patient-oriented research design, implementation, quantitative analysis and its application to clinical medicine and public health. The gained knowledge and skills form a solid basis for health research and disease control programs, including application in Low and Middle-Income countries and upcoming economies.

The face-to-face variant MSc Epidemiology was evaluated as the #1 Master program in the Dutch Master Selection Guide 2015! The ranking is based upon student judgments (National Student Survey), expert judgments (accreditation reports of NVAO, the Dutch and Flemish Accreditation Organization) and graduation percentages.

Please note that you must already have a Master’s degree in Life Science (MD, DVM, Pharm) to be admitted to this program. Candidates with an MSc degree from a university in the Netherlands or abroad that is comparable to the Dutch degrees indicated above are also eligible. There is a preference for candidates with at least one year of practical experience.

Why an online master?

Maximum flexibility and time-efficiency to learn at the time, pace and location most convenient to you. Very practical in combination with a career.

Personalized learning by choosing learning activities and way of guidance that suit you best.
