The master’s in Medicine is only open to students who have obtained their bachelor’s in Medicine at Maastricht University. The programme familiarises you with medical practice through clinical rotations in different fields of medicine. 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.
