Career prospects

Epidemiologists are mainly employed in health policy, medical scientific research or education.

The epidemiologist’s field has greatly expanded over the last decennia. Whereas epidemiologists mainly used to focus on research in preventative medicine and public health, their methodological expertise is increasingly being called upon nowadays. 

The Master of Epidemiology is also a good base if you are interested in participating in clinical scientific or applied genetic research in a position as applied clinical researcher.

Interested in research? Then a PhD might be something for you. With a PhD, you can work at the university as a researcher and teacher.
