Overview

Epidemiology is the discipline which studies the occurance of incidents and conditions in populations and attempts to make links to descriptive and/or influencing determinants. As a result, epidemiology is closely related to the field of public health.

The University of Antwerp ’s Master of Epidemiology is unique in Flanders.

During the course, methodological concepts from epidemiology are applied to scientific issues arising in the doctor-patient relationship.

Your future

Epidemiologists have become indispensable in:

  • the design, performance and analysis of applied medical scientific research

  • the application of medical scientific knowledge in the development of public health policy

Job opportunities

Epidemiologists are mainly employed in health policy, medical scientific research, or education.

The epidemiologist’s field has greatly expanded over the last decennia. Whereas epidemiologists mainly used to focus on research in preventative medicine and public health, they now play an important role in clinical research or genetic research.

A part of the graduates will end up in a research or teaching position at an academic institution in Belgium or elsewhere in the world. Others will work in Public Health. A third group will find a position within the pharmaceutical industry. The programme is also a good base for a career as applied clinical investigator, potentially combined with a positon as medical specialist.
