Viet-Thi Tran, MD, PhD

After an initial training in general medicine (Assistant professor), I realized a PhD thesis in Clinical Epidemiology, followed by a Post Doctoral Fellowship in Côte d’Ivoire (PACCI-CERMIPA center). Now, i’m working as a post-doctoral fellow in the Methods Team (INSERM- Sorbonne Paris Cité Epidemiology and Statistics Research Centre).

The focus of my research are chronic conditions, the burden of treatment and Minimally Disruptive Medicine. On a methodological level, I am interested in the development of Patient Reported Outcome Measures and in Qualitative research methods.
