The Erasmus Summer Programme, organised in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences (Nihes), a leading international centre for research and training in quantitative medicine and health sciences, offers three weeks with 33 courses in quantitative medical research. The programme takes place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on August 10 – 28, 2009. Three course packages have been carefully pre-designed in the frameworks of Research Training in Clinical Research, Public Health, and Genetic Epidemiology.
The programme focuses on key principles and methods of quantitative medical research. Open to all students and health professionals, it provides essential updates in a range of applied medical and health-care disciplines. The programme also features lectures and courses for those particularly interested in clinical medicine, general practice and public health, as well as for epidemiologists, geneticists and biostatisticians.
Nihes offers fellowships for 15 young, talented and motivated clinicians, epidemiologists and public health professionals, intended for promising young scientists who aspire to a successful research career, who are interested in obtaining a Master’s degree in quantitative medicine or health sciences, and wish to undertake a PhD research project in the (near) future. Fellowships cover tuition fee and accommodation in the Erasmus International House. All additional costs - travel expenses, subsistence, etc. - are at the participants' expense. Applicants, who have been granted a Nihes/ESP Fellowship, will automatically be enrolled in the course package of their choice.
