Both at home and throughout Europe, FHML is one of the most renowned institutes of its kind. We stand for cutting edge research and education, and pride ourselves on rapidly incorporating the latest developments and insights, and methods into our programmes. We also believe strongly in multidisciplinarity, looking at each topic from different angles and ensuring that the different specialists always work in close collaboration. More, FHML is always looking beyond borders. International healthcare is high on our agenda, and our work regularly transcends national boundaries, both in research and in education.
We are working hard to achieve our goal of being a international centre of expertise, and integrated health campus bringing together both knowledge institutions and the business world. Everything here revolves around life and health. FHML is part of the Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+), and works closely with the Maastricht academic hospital azM.
