Career prospects

Epidemiologists are mainly employed in public healthhealth policy, medical scientific research or education institutes or organisations.

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 molecular/genetic research in a position as an applied clinical researcher.

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