Curriculum outline

Epidemiology Postgraduate is a 1,5 year variant of the Master’s programme in Epidemiology. It is for those students who already have a Master’s degree in Life Sciences. Epidemiology examines the distribution of health and morbidity in populations and their determinants. It is a scientific discipline increasingly asked for in clinical (human, pharmaceutical or veterinary) research, industry and policymaking.


Students will acquire extensive knowledge and practical skills in epidemiology and statistics. You will become familiar with methods for quantitative analysis and evaluating occurrence relations in human or veterinary medicine and public health. You will gain expert knowledge in research design and analysis and its application to clinical practice. The knowledge and skills gained form a solid basis for health research and disease control programmes, including applications in developing countries. With graduation, students are eligible for registration as Epidemiologist A (Dutch registration system).
