Career Development

What is it about?

Each year, the EBPI Scientific Managers, Director and Coordinator prepare a series of activities and trainings designed to make EBPhDs more competitive candidates in your fields. Our goal is to provide a variety of professional development courses over your 3 – 4 years that will develop your skills in the non-content areas that are essential to success.

Based on our students' initiative, the EBPhD program furthermore supports events that open up perspectives in addition to the traditional academic path. These events are organized and carried out independently by the students. Students mainly invite Alumni and external epidemiologists and biostatisticians for informal exchange on career path and experiences after the PhD.
