About

Epidemiology, offered by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, is one of the Health Sciences,  M.Res and Health Sciences postgraduate, M.Sc. specializations the Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences (NIHES) offers.

Overview

Epidemiology, offered by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, plays an integral role in the application of medical research to populations, interacting with almost every other specialism.

Epidemiology studies the incidence, causes, consequences and control of disease, as well as people, patients and populations. It is a fundamental discipline for clinical medicine and public health. It may, together with basic science and clinical research, provide tools to learn about the etiology and consequences of diseases, the possibilities for prevention and treatment and the risk profiles of individuals and populations. Using advanced methods such as statistical analyses, field research and complex laboratory techniques, epidemiologists map various elements of a disease and the ways they are related.

Our aims

The objective of the epidemiology programmeat at Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences (NIHES) is to prepare candidates for a research position (e.g. a PhD project) in the area of clinical medicine or public health, or for example a more health policy oriented career. The programme comprises compulsory courses directed at study design, biostatistics, and data analysis. In addition, further specialization in specific areas of epidemiological research is needed. Extensive training in widely used statistical packages is also an important part of the curriculum. A large part of the programme is devoted to research.
