“The Erasmus Summer Programme is certainly a top class, comprehensive and intensive array of courses in the areas of epidemiology, statistics and public health, all of which are key areas for modern healthcare scientists and practitioners. With so many great modules on offer, my advice for students is: don’t despair, but return! You can always come back next year or take a short cut and attend the Erasmus Winter Programme. And with so many potential courses to take and options for developing a career in epidemiology and public health, see the ESP just as an appetizer, an excellent entree of course!”
