The research project is a very important aspect of MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online. Most of your time will be spent on your research project (56 ECTS).
The research project is an individual project which is conducted within a research theme of departments and institutes from Utrecht University (UU) or University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht). A staff member of Utrecht University, the UMC Utrecht or an affiliated institute will supervise the research project. Research projects may cover a wide variety of topics such as human or veterinary infectious disease, cardiovascular disease, oncology, pharmacology, occupational health risks and many more topics of clinical or public health relevance. The projects may include fundamental or clinical based research. To start the research project, students need to write a research proposal which has to be approved by the program coordinator and the Board of Examiners. The research project is finished by an oral presentation and by writing a scientific paper, which in some cases results in publication of this scientific article.
