This master's programme requires you to be active, engaged in healthcare and research. Seeing the person behind the patient, handling emotional reactions and relying on your own ethical values and moral integrity to ensure that you make carefully considered decisions are some of the aspects covered by this programme. To succeed, you need to be inquisitive, open and accessible. Last, but not least, you must be able to function in a team with other professionals.
The programme aims to train you to analyse, identify and solve patient problems. UM's medical programme is patient-centred. That's why we've adopted a multidisciplinary approach since medical problems are hardly ever isolated problems. During your master's programme, you will gradually be given more responsibility in dealing with patients.
The programme of the first two years includes 11 obligatory clinical rotations* as well as one elective. You work at several departments, where you see patients, make diagnoses and help to solve the patients medical problems.
*Please note: in June 2013 an update for the academic year 2013-2014 will be published.
