A full-fledged discipline
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.
