Clerkship at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre

The Medicine program takes six years (3-year Bachelor’s phase, 3-year Master’s phase). The student-centered practical clinical education method emphasizes not only the acquisition of medical expertise, but it also teaches the prospective doctor to be compassionate and to show personal interest in the patient.
The program has a strong scientific orientation. Students are encouraged to keep up with the latest professional developments from the very beginning. The key aspects include active knowledge acquisition, medical practice, internships, and career orientation.
In the master period you find our clerkships and research, mainly in the last year. So our students are in their 6th year, almost before their graduation. Our teachers expect experienced and independent students.
