The Technical Medicine programme was designed at the University of Twente and was the first of its kind in the world. Since then, Technical Medicine has gained recognition as a new, full-fledged discipline in Dutch healthcare. Its acknowledgement was accelerated by the fact that the competencies belonging to this new group of professionals have been officially recognized by the government and that graduates are qualified to treat patients independently in Dutch healthcare.
The University of Twente has an unparalleled focus on combining healthcare and technology. You will have the opportunity to work with leading researchers and scientists who share this focus. Furthermore, you will be able to work in our renowned research institute Technical Medical Centre.
