Research Master in Health Sciences specializing in Health Economics

Erasmus MC Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences - Erasmus University Rotterdam
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

The specialization offers a unique combination of epidemiological and health economic courses, which are aimed at teaching you important analytical and professional skills for designing, carrying out and reporting academic research in the field of health economics. [+]

Top in Netherlands Masters 2017. Research in health economics is becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Health care costs are rising rapidly creating a serious concern for health care decision makers around the world. The sustainability of the health care system, that is accessible and affordable to all, is hard to achieve and maintain. The difficulties related to ensuring a fair and comprehensive health care system are an important incentive for conducting health economic research. This is why health economics is a dynamic and growing research area with numerous job opportunities. The specialization offers a unique combination of epidemiological and health economic courses, which are aimed at teaching you important analytical and professional skills for designing, carrying out and reporting academic research in the field of health economics. Typically, as a Health Economics student you will deal with questions such as: How do we balance between affordability of health care and quality of health care? Are new health care interventions worth the expenditure? How do health care systems perform relative to each other in terms of solidarity and affordability? Are health and health care distributed fairly within populations? How can we improve our current health economic research methods? How can we design health economic studies? This specialization is a joint venture between the NIHES and the Institute of Health Policy & Management; both are institutes of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Prior knowledge of (health) economics is not required. This programme will help accelerate your scientific career! Kris Vargas from Peru “NIHES provided... [-]

Master in Oncology

 

Could the common cold virus give us a vaccine for cancer? Dendritic cells are specialized cells that alert the immune system to danger. Tumours interfere with this function, thereby managing to escape detection by the immune system. Dr Tanja de Gruijl at the VUmc immunotherapy research group is trying to develop new cancer vaccines by using the common cold virus. This is just one example of the innovations being carried out in addition to traditional treatment methods.

 

 

Training a new generation of specialists to meet future challenges

Cancer is one of the main causes of death in the Western world. In our ageing society the number of cancer patients will continue to rise in the coming decades, since the incidence of the disease is higher among the elderly. Research into preventing, detecting and treating this disease will therefore become even more important in the future. Research into how cancer develops and the long-term effects of cancer treatment is also essential, especially now that more people are living longer after being successfully treated. Cancer research is multidisciplinary and takes place within a global network. Researchers must be well equipped to function effectively in such a demanding environment. The Master’s programme in Oncology will provide you with the training you need to carry out this vital interdisciplinary work.  ... [-]

Master in Neurosciences

 

Brain disorders, in particular neurodegenerative diseases and mental illnesses, are among the most prevalent and debilitating diseases of our time. They are typically caused by the interplay of environmental factors and genetic variation in multiple genes, which is currently being mapped by major international initiatives. Future brain research should therefore focus on integrative projects as a next step in characterizing this complex environmental/genetic interplay and in revealing how it translates into brain function and/or disease. To succeed, we need a new generation of neuroscientists capable of integrating information from genes and proteins to synapses, and from networks up to complex brain function and dysfunction. Are you ready for the challenge?... [-]
