Application Epidemiologist B

I want to apply for registration as Epidemiologist B


First read the Registration requirements thoroughly!

Based on the registration requirements, fill in the training programme as completely as possible on the following form: Training programme B

Check whether your training is recognised and fill it in correctly.

For section ‘B4 Portfolio’, please view the guidelines for drawing up a portfolio.

Note: The form must be completed in full (digitally), without references or links.

Please contact one of the Recognised Epidemiology Educators and discuss your programme with him/her. Adjust the program if necessary. If the recognised educator agrees to your program, he/she must complete and sign the agreement statement.

Gather all necessary appendices (diplomas, lists of grades, certificates, digital version of the end product, diploma of PhD, publications, evidence portfolio, and possibly some appendices of the work experience in a biomedical context and courses in a non-recognised programme)


Check if your application is complete. If this is not the case, the CTB will request the missing appendices from you. This will delay your application.
