The Health Systems and Prevention programme at the University of Groningen is a track within the research master Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology that bridges the research focus of CPE with that of health systems, health policy and prevention.
The programme is a collaboration between the University Medical Center Groningen and the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health. HSP Track students follow the basic CPE programme, but with a focus on health systems and prevention.
This focus is mainly incorporated in the Master Thesis project, which for HSP students also includes an internship at a non-academic (Health) organization, the elective courses and the research meetings.
The HSP track adds an interdisciplinary approach to contemporary public health issues to this foundation, by providing interfaculty education and embedding strong bonds with the public health field in the programme.
Your master thesis can function as the basis of your own PhD proposal. High-ranking students will be offered a full scholarship to continue with a three-year PhD programme at the UMCG!
If you do not wish to continue in academia, you can work as a researcher at a non-academic organization, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), health insurers, (international) hospitals, or municipal health services.
