The HSP track combines cutting-edge interdisciplinary research with practical policy questions, aiming to solve complex public health problems related to societal issues like an ageing population, increasing levels of chronic diseases, widening health inequalities, migration and urbanization. You learn to tackle issues like these from various academic disciplines, as you are taught and supervised by experts in economics, spatial sciences, psychology, sociology, and medicine. The track is embedded within the research master Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology (CPE) and is an initiative of the University Medical Center Groningen and the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health.

A unique element of the programme is the academic oriented internship, a learning period during which students can collaborate with a national and/or international societal partner such as the Ministry of Health, health insurers, municipal health services, occupational health services and social security institutes. In this setting, you will develop skills for putting research into practice, in order to make a measurable impact on public health. So are you looking to connect high-quality academic research with the practice of public health? Apply now!
