A further focus is on publication in prestigious academic journals and on the professional communication and dissemination of research results to ensure maximum impact.

The programme also integrates students into the international research landscape and offers the opportunity to participate in ongoing top research projects conducted by the nationally and internationally well-connected Department of Public Health, Health Services Researchaund Health Technology Assessment.
