Research stay abroad

Department of Clinical Epidemiology strongly encourages our PhD students to go abroad for a research stay visiting another research institution to gain experience outside our local environment. For the PhD students, it will be a unique opportunity to present and discuss their methodologies, analyses, and results with skilled international researchers. Such networking is also certain to facilitate future international collaborations.

During my 3-month research stay at Boston University, I received valuable feedback on my project and took some great courses. My host Prof. Jaimie Gradus and colleagues were very welcoming and included me in meetings and events at the department. I enjoyed living in Boston and had time for both sightseeing and outdoor activities.

I highly recommend other PhD students to go on a research stay abroad.
