Would you like to help patients and treat diseases?
Perhaps as a doctor or a medical researcher? In this Bachelor's degree programme you prepare yourself to do just that.
In this bachelor's degree programme, you prepare yourself for a career in medicine. Because the development of a medical professional takes a lot of time and attention and since we aim to prepare our students optimally, a limited number of study places are available. Therefore, the medical degree programme in Groningen has 410 places available each year. You can be admitted to this programme by participating in a selection procedure. The programme is provided in two languages; Dutch and English.
The three-year medical bachelor's degree programme in Groningen is patient-centred: you will be introduced to patients right from the start of the first year. You will learn about all medical disciplines based on those patients’ cases. You will carry out study assignments independently or in small groups. During a two-week care internship, you will experience the daily routines in a department in a hospital or a nursing home.
As a medical student, you will build a solid theoretical basis and develop academic and practical skills. After the Bachelor's phase, students from all four learning communities enter the Master's programme together, and if all goes well you leave university after six years as a physician (basisarts).
Please note: In order to be eligible for the Master's programme as a non-Dutch student you need to meet the language requirement: C1 Dutch.
