Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
I am an epidemiologist, professionally trained in epidemiology in The Netherlands (MSc Biomedical Health Sciences, major in epidemiology, Radboud University of Nijmegen). I obtained my PhD from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, reporting on a randomized controlled clinical trial on the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Since then I have been registered as senior epidemiologist with the National Committee for Medical-Biological Training in the Netherlands.
After my PhD I have been involved in research studies focusing on the health and health care use of refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants in the Netherlands. In 2007 I moved to South Africa to work as a senior lecturer in epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Venda, Thohoyandou where I was involved in a project on the malaria incidence in Limpopo province. I have a series of publications in highly regarded international peer-reviewed journals.
