Are you interested in optimizing the treatment of patients with complex medical conditions? Do you want to do this as part of a team made up of different healthcare professionals?
In the Intramural Care (IZ) Learning Community, you learn to translate a thorough understanding of a disease into top-quality medical care for individual patients and into excellent clinical research among groups of patients. The major challenge for intramural care in the coming years is the interdisciplinary treatment of patients, many of them elderly, with increasingly complex medical conditions. This care must be organized in a safe and transparent manner in line with the UMCG's high quality standards.
Current healthcare is so complicated that successful treatment of a patient depends on many factors and not just on a single physician. The focus in this LC is on collaboration between different healthcare professionals. Furthermore, this LC pays extra attention to patient safety. Why do things go wrong sometimes and how can we learn from these situations for the future?
In addition to safe, optimal care, this LC pays a lot of attention to the scientific research on which this care is based, and students also learn to carry out patient-related research themselves.
