The Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences builds bridges between healthcare and technology
As of 11 May 2023, the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences is proud to announce that the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands has accredited two new programmes. Prospective students can now apply for the bachelor’s programme Regenerative Medicine and Technology or the master’s programme Health and Digital Transformation, both of which will start in September 2023.
Healthcare is continuously evolving in order to keep up with the rising patient population and their demands. Integrating advanced health technology will be an important trend to transform healthcare into a model that is sustainable, innovative and data-driven. This requires enthusiastic professionals who can develop new ideas and products.
The Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences offers two new programmes that will provide students with the skills to build bridges between healthcare and technology.
The bachelor’s programme Regenerative Medicine and Technology combines science, engineering and medicine to design and develop new medical therapies based on regeneration. These therapies can help the body to repair itself. This approach can help treat damaged tissue or attempt to heal certain chronic diseases instead of merely treating their symptoms. This programme prepares graduates for a future in biomedical engineering, business development or clinical research.
The master’s programme Health and Digital Transformation works with data science and digital technology to transform the healthcare system and its workflows. Its aim is to implement digital applications in healthcare by bridging the gap between technology and healthcare. Graduates have a future in the field of innovation, digital devices, project management or research.
