Erasmus MC has declared ‘internationalisation’ to be an essential part of its medical curriculum, research master and doctoral programmes. The aim is that by 2010 at least fifty percent of medical students follow part of their training abroad. All courses will be taught in English.
Collaboration with foreign research institutions
All participating research groups and departments closely collaborate with foreign research institutions of a high international standard.
Excellent international students will be invited to enter the ‘Infection & Immunity’ research master programme, integrating education and research and stimulating further collaboration between Erasmus MC and the host institute.
As part of the programme, each student may visit an internationally recognized foreign institution of his/her own choice to participate in translational research. This can be for a period of 6 months.
Funding will be made available to meet the students’ travel and accommodation needs. The budget is € 1.250 to cover costs for a stay abroad per student.
