OUR STORY

Society and healthcare systems of the future need T-shaped professionals, who have the academic skills and competencies to work in multidisciplinary teams in a globally-oriented environment. Therefore, we aim to strengthen and synergize the research-teaching-healthcare nexus from medical needs to bench to bedside to society and back again. Already at the early undergraduate phase, students should engage in inquiry-based learning (learn by doing), research/challenge-based learning (learn via real-world cases), multidisciplinary learning (learn by collaboration), and situated learning (learn with role-models, patients and other stakeholders). To this end, we have founded the Bachelor Research Hub in 2020, a dedicated innovation space where bachelor students Biomedical Sciences and Medicine perform real research together with investigators, patients and medical doctors of the University Medical Center Utrecht.
