Public Health and Epidemiology - PhD Graduate Programme
The Graduate programme in Public Health and Epidemiology (PHE) covers a comprehensive area consisting of population-based epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, social medicine, environmental medicine, industrial medicine, research in prevention and health promotion, and health services research.
The areas carry a great deal of overlap and are central to our understanding of the occurrence and causes of diseases (both the surrounding environment and the individual factors), understanding of patient courses, the health services’ organisation and the effect of different strategies of prevention and health promotion.
The many disciplines within the PHE programme have a common methodological basis in epidemiology and in biostatistics. PHE also attracts researchers from several clinical and theoretical institutes, as the research may comprise patient cohorts, genes, biomarkers and physiological processes in the search of causes for development of especially chronic diseases.
Public health research makes up a substantial part of the translational research.
PHE performs series of PhD courses within epidemiology and public health and often works together with the Graduate programme in Biostatistics and Bioinformatics.
The courses do not only apply to members of PHE, but also to a large number of other PhD students.
PHE is anchored in the Department of Public Health at University of Copenhagen.
PHE is part of the national network of Graduate programmes in public health (GRASPH) comprising Aalborg University, Aarhus University, University of Southern Denmark and University of Copenhagen. The main purpose of the network is to organize a summer school.
Each student that apply for a PhD must be attached to a specific graduate programme (GP).
If you want to become attached to Public Health and Epidemiology, please forward your project description to the head of the GP, professor Naja Hulvej Rod, firstname.lastname@example.org.
She will then evaluate, if your subject fits into this particular GP. If not, she will recommend you another programme, more relevant for your project.
Section of Epidemiology at Department of Public Health offers a series of epidemiological seminars.
Public Health & Epi News is distributed to PhD students and supervisors affiliated with the graduate program in Public Health and Epidemiology.
The newsletter is published two-three times a year and is meant to be a dynamic platform for exchanging information within the graduate program. Any inputs on events, new books, international courses, writing groups etc. are very welcome.
Please send your input in an e-mail to Lisbeth Lyng Hansen, email@example.com
Deadline for next issue of Public Health & Epi News is 26th of October, 2020.
