Degree projects at MEB

Denna sida på svenska

At our department we supervise students during their undergraduate degree project course at KI.

There are many ways for students to identify a potential supervisor who they may work with during the undergraduate degree project course. You may have seen a project you like in the database over potential projects or you may have been inspired by a teacher. You can then contact him or her directly, or get in touch with us. If you are interested in epidemiological or biostatistical research in general but don't know which researcher to contact, write to us and describe yourself a little and we might be able to help find a suitable project.

At MEB, we believe that it is important that all new students early on have the necessary background knowledge and are familiar with how the department is organized. We therefore offer an introductory course in epidemiology and biostatistics that runs the first week of every semester. After this initial week, each student will be part of a beginner's journal club that meets regularly. This gives, apart from scientific training, an important network and forum for questions of all sorts.

An ideal method to get insight into epidemiological or biostatistical research is to carry out an undergraduate degree project within the department or undertake an internship; both are arranged by contacting researchers directly. Further, MEB sometimes organises a summer research school, which can be a stepping stone to doctoral studies.
