About

This Principles of Genetic Epidemiology course, Erasmus University Rotterdam aims to give a basic introduction to various methods used in classical genetic epidemiology. In combination with the course Searching Genes for Complex Disorders, the course offers an excellent introduction to genetic epidemiologic research for epidemiologists, clinicians and molecular biologists with no background in genetic epidemiology. Participants are introduced to the basic principles of population genetics, segregation, linkage and association analyses. The relevant background of human genetics and statistics is presented. The goal of the course is that participants are able to interpret the findings in modern genetic research.

Funding

Each year, the Erasmus Summer Programme provides international students and professionals with an invaluable opportunity to spend three weeks in Holland, bringing themselves right up to date in the health sciences.

In just three weeks, the Erasmus Summer Programme provides 30 courses on state-of-the-art biomedical topics. Each course is designed to fully satisfy the needs of international students with a specific interest such as clinical medicine, general practice, public health, epidemiology, genetics or biostatistics.

A key part in the Erasmus Summer Programme is played by the Fellowships: three suites of courses that provide top-level instruction in clinical research training, public health research, and genetic epidemiology. Each Fellowship is a stimulating challenge for talented young scientists who seek leading careers in scientific research.

Between them, the Erasmus Summer Programme and the Fellowships make a vital contribution to life-long learning and the professional development of students and teachers. By attracting ever greater interest each year, they reveal the enormous international demand for a springboard to an MSc or PhD in quantitative medicine or public health research.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
