Detailed information about this course:

Description

In order to stimulate students to combine the knowledge of different topics and to ensure you have a lasting understanding of the core topics of our field, the core topics of the fall (core) courses are assessed in the combined core competences exam. The core competences exam is a digital multiple choice exam that covers all the core knowledge obtained during the core courses. The aim of this exam is to ensure that students not only master the course objectives when they finish a course, but also master all core competences required as an epidemiologist or quantitative researcher once they graduate from the programme.

This exam is graded pass/fail, with a pass corresponding to a score of 60% or higher. The core topics of the following courses are covered in the core competences exam:

  • CK010 Study Design
  • CK020 Biostatistics I
  • CK030 Biostatistics II
  • CK040 Clinical Epidemiology
  • CK050 Principles of Public Health
  • CK060 Selected Topics in Epidemiology

The core competences exam is only mandatory for students starting their programme in August 2021 or later.
