Course content

All of these are questions that those who study and work in Clinical and Psychological Epidemiology seek to explore. If you find yourself interested in the answers to these questions, and more broadly in the relationship between the psychological condition of people and their physical health, then Clinical and Psychosocial Epidemiology may be the right choice for you!

“There is no health without mental health”, Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban-Ki Moon famously stated. Psychological and social factors have a major influence on healthy and active ageing ( 'Healthy Ageing'). Mental problems are responsible for 13 per cent of the total disease burden worldwide. Considering our own experiences, most of us will know someone struggling with their mental health, and the number of people with mental health problems continues to rise. This puts enormous pressure on the individuals and families affected as well as on the wider socio- economic system.

Why in Groningen?

The focus on psychosocial factors in addition to biomedical factors is unique. The result is students being able to view problems from different perspectives, and having a broader overview of the field.

Job perspectives

If desired, our programme guarentees a smooth transition between the Master and a PhD, at any univeristy worldwide, but also prepares for key positions in any organisation, public or private, concerned with research or its applications.

Graduates of the Research Master programme are given priority in the allocation of PhD programmes at the University of Groningen.

Job examples

- Municipal Health Services
- Public Health Institutes
- Health Insurance Companies
- Ministries of Health

Due to the interactive nature of the programme, students have many opportunities to get involved in ongoing research and studies, and to advance their full array of research skills.

Linked to the course is the Research Institute SHARE, part of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences of the University Medical Center Groningen and of the University of Groningen. SHARE's mission is to elucidate factors related to health, notably healthy ageing. This is achieved by research on determinants and consequences of ageing, incident disease, quality of life, care and cure, as well as by training researchers in the area of health research.
