As you become more experienced, you’ll gradually be given more responsibility in dealing with patients. But education and a research project are also included in the curriculum. Your clinical rotations will primarily take place in the Netherlands, but you can complete parts of the programme abroad. Upon graduation, you’ll be a qualified medical doctor (MD). Your diploma will allow you to continue on to a training programme in a chosen specialty, such as surgery, psychiatry or paediatrics. But careers in scientific research will also be open to you.

Broad training

The amount of time you spend on education is limited during your master’s. Applied healthcare is the prime focus of the programme. As an intern, you’ll receive training in different fields of medicine through rotations at, for example, hospitals and general medical practices. The programme is patient-centred: you have a lot of patient contact and learn how to apply theories to real-life situations. You solve problems based on existing knowledge, and on the knowledge you gain. Your time will also be spent on information gathering, individual study and practical exercises.

Clinical rotations in focus

Your rotations will give you a thorough insight into healthcare and research. The curriculum is structured to familiarise you with a broad range of medical fields, such as neuroscience, family medicine, social medicine and scientific research. You’ll also do rotations in surgical medicine, mother and child and reflective medicine. In addition to these mandatory blocks, you’ll also have two elective rotations that will allow you to determine which specialisation is the right choice for you.
