Your stepping stone to professional research The healthcare chain stretches from prevention of illness, diagnosis and care, to cure and maintenance of good health. And with ever-closer integration in the EU, and its expanding connections with international trends, it is starting to cross national borders as well. To implement evidence-based medical and public health practices, we need to study the efficacy and cost effectiveness of interventions on a local as well as a global scale.
The opportunities and need for research within this new healthcare dynamic are endless. The Research Master in Health Sciences – the only one of its kind in the Netherlands - is educating a new generation of healthcare researchers to be on the cutting-edge of healthcare innovation. Its goal: to train you to design, conduct and evaluate top quality, interdisciplinary research related to health sciences and healthcare in its local as well as global context
