MSc Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology
Are you a talented student? And are you interested in the psychosocial factors of epidemiology, such as quality of life and public mental health issues? Then this is the programme for you.
The two-year program starts with two parallel modules on the basics of Medicine and Psychology. This ensures a solid background for all students. In addition, there will be more specialized modules.
The core of this program consists of a research project, resulting in a Master's thesis. In the first year, you will start with this project. The emphasis is on hands-on experience so that you gain expertise and experience in the full process. To support you with your research, you will be individually linked to a senior researcher in one of the participating research groups. To stimulate scientific thinking and reasoning, small coaching groups will meet once a week during the entire program under the supervision of a scientific coach. The scientific coach will also advise you on issues such as the choice of modules and your thesis project. The program runs in close collaboration with important clinical research groups on chronic diseases from the University Medical Center Groningen.
