The Research Master in Health Sciences prepares students to propose, plan and conduct research related to health sciences and healthcare. Students begin with a core curriculum that teaches knowledge and skills essential for health sciences research. In the second half of that year, students write research grant proposals and begin studies within one of the following specialisations:
- Clinical Epidemiology
- Global Health
- Health Technology Assessment
- Social Health Sciences
During the second year, students conduct individual research and report their findings in a master’s thesis, written under the guidance of a senior researcher. Exemplary students whose research grants receive funding can become candidates for PhD positions.
