Healthcare is rapidly changing and gaining complexity. The use of technology is increasing and new innovations are everywhere. But current developments in healthcare require specialists with knowledge and skills of both medicine and technology, which they can use to improve healthcare for individual patients. Our Dutch-taught Bachelor's programme Technical Medicine will help you become such a professional. As a technical physician you are the linking pin between medicine and technology. You learn how to apply existing technology in innovative ways to optimize diagnosis and treatment of patients. This Bachelor’s programme was designed at the University of Twente and was the first of its kind in the whole world. After the Bachelor's programme you can continue on to our English-taught, three-year Master's programme Technical Medicine, thus completing your training in Technical Medicine. Technical Medicine is a relatively new profession. Also the healthcare industry is very keen for people with these sets of skills. All our graduates so far have high-level jobs within a few months of graduating, mostly in academic or top clinical hospitals.
