The School for Public Health and Primary Care: Caphri is one of five schools of the Faculty of Health Medicine and Lifesciences of Maastricht University and can be seen as a further development of the pre-existing research institute Caphri. Its research domains are public health and primary care, focusing on chronic diseases. The emphasis lies on multidisciplinary applied research with a primary interest in health outcomes relevant to individuals in an extra- and transmural setting. The multidisciplinary research projects are organized in 15 research programmes, which are grouped in three clusters: Primary Care, Innovation of Care, and Public Health. The aim of the School is to excel in scientific quality as well as in societal relevance. In addition to research, the School is responsible for training researchers and providing (research) master-level education. The School coordinates research and master education activities from the Departments of General Practice, Epidemiology, Health Education and Health Promotion, Health Policy and Management, Health Ethics and Society, Nursing and Care, Methods and Statistics, Orthopaedics, Rehabilitation, Social Medicine and International Health. On a national level, Caphri participates in the Research School CaRe (Netherlands School of Primary Care Research) and in the Research School WTMC (Science, Technology and Modern Culture). Both Schools are officially acknowledged by the KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) and are centres for high quality training of PhD students and for national and international research collaboration.
