Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences
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. FHML works in close cooperation with Maastricht UMC+ (MUMC+).
At FHML everything revolves around life and health. The education spans the entire continuum from bachelor’s and master’s programmes to PhD and post academic education and from health and healthcare to medicine and life sciences.
The multidisciplinary research of the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences focuses on a set of themes or research programmes, that are conducted in close collaboration with Maastricht UMC+ (MUMC+) and the Faculty of Psychology and Neurosciences.
Multidisciplinary research and collaborations contribute to solving major societal issues within our primary research themes. Whenever possible, research is translated into economic, financial, or social value.
