Can mindfulness support people in dealing with chronic disease? What is the relationship between depressive symptoms and cardiovascular disease? How do people function at work having survived cancer?

Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology is a selective two-year research master that focuses on these questions. Students conduct research in the fields of public health, health psychology, epidemiology, and psychiatry.

You will study the reciprocal relationship between the psychological and physical health of adults and children. The central idea is that psychological, biological and social aspects all play a role in any physical condition.

You will be encouraged to engage in research throughout the programme where a strong focus lies on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of somatic and mental health problems. Moreover, CPE is situated in the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), which means that you can benefit from a unique and interesting clinical setting. Classes are taught in small groups by leading scientists.

You will have the opportunity to choose additional courses to suit your particular interests. Your individual development as a researcher is central to the programme. You will be conducting research side by side with scientists who are leading experts in their field. CPE was rated first in its category in the Dutch Higher Education Guide 2017!

Studieprogramma

opbouw
Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology consists of both collective and individualized courses. Every course succeeds the other which means that you will only work on one course at a time.
Depending on your knowledge, you will learn about the basics of medicine or the basics in psychology and psychosocial factors. Apart from broadening your knowledge in the field of health and the determinants of health, you will explore the fields of Public Health, Health Psychology, Community and Occupational Medicine, and Psychiatric Epidemiology. Strong attention is given to epidemiological research methods and statistics. You will be able to choose additional courses to suit your particular interests. Your individual development as a researcher is central to the programme and therefore you will be conducting research side by side with scientists who are leading experts in their field.

During the second year you will write your master thesis, which can function as the basis of your own PhD proposal. High-ranking students will be offered a full scholarship to continue with a fully funded three-year PhD programme!

werkzaam als PhD Student bij UMCG
...lectures are always given in an interactive format, which allows sufficient communication between students and lecturers. Each student can work with top scientists..

During my bachelor study in psychology, I was interested in how psychology and medicine can be interacted with each other to help people. It was exactly this interest that led me to choose the Research Master's program Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology, which combined psychology and medicine perfectly. Here in the CPE program, lectures are always given in an interactive format, which allows sufficient communication between students and lecturers. Each student can work with top scientists during the master thesis project and really get to know how to perform scientific research...
My PhD project is focused on cancer patients who were receiving psychosocial care in psycho-oncology institutions. I am interested in examining the underlying mechanisms of psychosocial care, for example, how patients' personal resources changed during psychosocial care. Without the Research Master program, this would not have been possible. The CPE program not only offered me the state-of-the-art knowledge in health field, but also provided me necessary skills (i.e., thinking, writing, presenting) to perform research.
