Clinical Epidemiology is the field where the methods of the classical Epidemiology are used to evaluate and orient the diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive interventions used in the clinical practice.

The Pediatric Clinical Epidemiology is a second level degree teaching subject in other nations, but in Italy there isn’t at all. The partnership between the University of Rome Tor Vergata and the Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital is the occasion to teach this subject in Italy as well. The education in Pediatric Clinical Epidemiology is the answer both for the clinical studies and and the quality and safety of the cures promotion. The pediatric context presents different specificities, such as the lack of efficient studies and safety of preventive and therapeutic interventions on different age groups (newborns, children, adolescents). The Master’s purpose is to train Professionals with a Pediatric, Epidemiological, or Public Health background, to teach them the methods of the Clinical Epidemiology, applied to the evaluation of preventive, diagnostic or therapeutic interventions addressed to the pediatric population (0-18 y.o.), and the transfer of the interventions with a documented efficiency and safety into the clinical practice.

The acquired competencies will be oriented to professional outlets in the Family, Community, Hospital Pediatrics and Public Health field and Health Directive careers.


The overall cost of the Master is € 3.000.

25 % of the fee must be paid at the registration and the remaining part within the deadline stated in the announcement.
