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.
