The chair of QVE is involved in all 3 levels of education: BSc, MSc and PhD. It is possible to perform a Thesis or Internship at our group.
Visit the Study Handbook website for more detailed information about the courses offered by our group.
- QVE-20306 Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics
- QVE-30306 Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology
- QVE-30806 Management of Infections and Diseases in Animal Populations
Second year course: Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (QVE-20306), BSc level, in Dutch using the book of Thrusfield, Veterinary Epidemiology). Software used: Winepiscope which can be downloaded from the CLIVE site. Note: Winepsicope does not run under Windows 7 64 bits, but it will do under the 32 bits version of Windows 7. Unfortunately this cannot be repaired.
