Epidemiologisch onderwijs in Nederland

Een van de drie beleidspunten van de VvE is: Bevorderen van de kwaliteit van epidemiologisch onderwijs. Een activiteit die hieronder valt is het ondersteunen en stimuleren van epidemiologisch onderwijs in Nederland. De vereniging wil de opleidingen Epidemiologie in Nederland dan ook ruimte bieden op de VvE website, waar zij een overzicht van hun cursussen kunnen weergeven. Daarbij wil de vereniging studenten een duidelijk overzicht bieden van welke opleidingen en cursussen er zijn in Nederland.
