Some of the graduates will hold a promotion position at an academic institution in Belgium or abroad. Other graduates will end up with organisations in public health. A third category of job opportunities for graduates is within the pharmaceutical industry, a.o. as "Clinical Research Associate" (CRA).

Finally, a number of graduates will find a place in educational facilities (universities and university colleges).
