Explore the potential of medical research. In upcoming years, important discoveries will be made in the health sciences. Take part in unearthing these discoveries. Get the methodological, theoretical, and statistical foundation you need to design and carry out your own practical research - and publish your results. Work in the stimulating environment of the Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences (NIHES). Attend lectures by prominent scientists. Choose your own specialization, and do cutting-edge research with the support of a personal tutor. Learn state-of-the-art research methods, and how to study the literature on an issue, analyze data, and publish in high-impact journals. NIHES, at the Erasmus Medical Center, is a top-ranked institution with a strong international dimension. Let us be your springboard to a career in international research, public health, health policy, health economics, clinical medicine, or pharmaceutical research.
This MSc program focuses on training students who are well educated in research methodology. The program provides you with a solid theoretical, methodological and statistical basis for designing and implementing a research project and will teach you how to best publish the results of your research project. Your individual research project will be supervised by leading professors and senior researchers, with the objective of delivering a high quality scientific research paper. Discover gene and protein pathways involved in complex diseases, specialize in novel high-throughput technologies from genome-wide association and sequencing to proteomics, take up the challenge of handling and exploring datasets of astronomical sizes, translate discoveries into clinical medicine and public health practice, and more. This program will help accelerate your scientific career! Kris Vargas from Peru “NIHES provided me with the tools, training and confidence to face real-world health issues.”
