Présentation

What is Comparative Effectiveness Research?

Clinical research has generated tremendous knowledge on diagnosis and treatment. However, it does not provide sufficient information to determine what treatment works best, for whom, and under which conditions.

Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) addresses these issues by identifying the most effective interventions for specific patient groups. It is a growing area of cutting-edge research that is elevated at the level of national initiative in the USA. It is “the generation and synthesis of evidence that compares the benefits and harms of alternative methods to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor a clinical condition or to improve the delivery of care”.

An innovative approach

This is a unique opportunity for students to get a specialised Master in Comparative Effectiveness Research, a first of its kind in Europe, offered by top-level professors coming from the Amsterdam University, the Danube University, the Ioannina University, the Oxford University, the Paris Descartes University, the Paris Diderot University, the Queen’s University Belfast, the Utrecht University, and the York University.

This new Master of Science is delivered in English and aims at international students who want to acquire interdisciplinary skills to evolve in the field of Comparative Effectiveness Research. The programme is limited to 30 students, a small group size that will allow professors to use highly interactive and innovative teaching methods including work in small groups. The goal of the programme is to acquire strong skills in methods, epidemiology, and biostatistics.
