Information for PhD candidates

A selection of recommended or mandatory courses (including discount opportunities) is displayed suitable for Amsterdam Public Health PhD candidates.

EpidM courses

Every year EpidM organizes courses in epidemiological and advanced statistical methods and a Master’s Program in Epidemiology (including international Winter Courses). The courses can provide important support in the design and analysis of your research. The dates of the courses are now available and from now on you can register.

For PhD students of the VU Amsterdam and Amsterdam UMC (both locations VUmc and AMC) working on a project that is embedded within the Amsterdam Public Health research institute (APH), a discount of 25% applies to the course fee of the courses and/or the Master program in Epidemiology.

A condition for obtaining the discount is that the research project is embedded within APH. This means that the project must have been approved by the Scientific Quality Committee of APH and has received the official embedding letter with a SQC number. For embedding your project, go to the Scientific Quality. Once your project is embedded you can claim your discount by sending in the discount form. For more information read the terms of payment of EpidM.
