Course description Each year of the bachelor's programme in Medicine focuses on a central theme. Your tutorials, skills trainings and lectures revolve around this theme. This will allow you to retain the information better. * The first year deals with 'The human body in health and sickness'. In your tutorial group, you'll address topics such as 'circulation and breathing'. At the same time, your skills training will teach you resuscitation techniques. * The second year is focused on 'Integration of knowledge and skills: on your way to practice'. You learn to think about diagnostics and treatments in a clinical manner. * The third year is centred on the theme 'From paper to patient'. Instead of reading patient stories on paper, you get to meet real patients in outpatients clinics, whose cases form the basis of your studies. Your role in patient encounters begins with observation. Over time this gradually becomes more active and you are given more and more responsibility. The bachelor's in Medicine is a three-year programme. There's a Dutch and an English-taught bachelor.
