Technical Medicine Master’s programme to start in September 2017

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

It is impossible to imagine the healthcare sector without medical technology. Innovative diagnosis and treatment methods call for a new type of medical professional; someone with both medical and technical knowledge, who can form a link between patients and technology. That’s why, as from September 2017, students will be able to start the Master’s programme in Technical Medicine, which is a collaboration between TU Delft and the university medical centres of Erasmus University Rotterdam and Leiden University.
