This specialization belongs to the Master's programme Technical Medicine.
Medical Sensing and Stimulation focusses on the acquisition, processing and interpretation of medical signals (diagnostics), and the use of signals to stimulate and thereby correct or improve impaired functions of the human organism (therapy).
Technical Physicians who graduate from this Master’s programme have a good knowledge of the clinical context in which medical signals are relevant, and are able to initiate and develop innovations in the use of these signals. They can use their knowledge of physiology, pathophysiology, signal acquisition and processing for various clinical applications. They are capable of performing patient measurements independently in different situations, ranging from an out-of-hospital setting to measurements in the operating room or intensive care unit. They can process and interpret these data so as to contribute to more reliable or efficient diagnosis, or to novel therapies. In addition, Technical Physicians are trained to use signals for therapeutic applications, for example by using deep-brain stimulation in the treatment of movement disorders or epilepsy.
Technical Physicians are set to play an innovative role in the field of medical-technical diagnostics or treatment. Their roles may range from that of advisor to active participation in a multidisciplinary patient-oriented treatment team.
