specialisatie Clinical Epidemiology

Clinical epidemiology, which is both empirical and patient oriented, is most suited for a combination of the quantitative approach in clinical research and clinical practice.

In recent years, the quantitative approach in clinical research and clinical practice has become increasingly important. In daily practice modern clinicians are expected to combine patient care with clinical research. There is a growing need for physicians who can both initiate research and participate in it. Clinical epidemiology, which is empirical and patient oriented, is most suited for such a combination. It involves diagnostic, prognostic, preventive and therapeutic studies that follow directly from quantitative study designs. Training in study design and analysis provides a sound basis for successful clinical research.

specialisatie Epidemiology

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 aetiology and consequences of diseases, the possibilities for prevention and treatment and the risk profiles of individuals and populations. Epidemiology plays an integral role in the application of medical research to populations, interacting with almost every other specialism. Using advanced, predominantly quantitative, methods such as statistical analyses, field research and complex laboratory techniques, epidemiologists map various elements of a disease and the ways they are related.

specialisatie Genetic Epidemiology

Genetic Epidemiology is concerned with studying the genes involved in complex disorders.

Genetic Epidemiology focuses on the uses of genetic, molecular and epidemiological research in identifying the possible familial and hereditary factors underlying the origins and manifestations of human disease. The cause of most chronic diseases -including cancer, coronary artery disease, diabetes, hypertension, and psychiatric disorders- may lie in the interactions between environmental factors and genetic susceptibility. Genetic Epidemiology helps optimize etiological studies through an integrated approach that draws on the methodologies of epidemiology, biostatistics, genetics and molecular biology.

specialisatie Pharmaco-epidemiology

Pharmaco-epidemiology pertains to the study of the use and of the effects of drugs. It links clinical pharmacology and epidemiology.

This specialisation provides the theoretical basis for studying the intended effects as well as the adverse effects of drugs used in humans. The focus is mainly on drug research after marketing, including post marketing surveillance and drug risk assessment.

specialisatie Public Health

Public health is the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts of society.
