Minor Biomedical Topics in Health Care

Here you will find all descriptions of courses in the minor. Please go to www.minor.vu.nl/en/ for more information about the contents of the minor programme.

The central question within the minor Biomedical Topics in Health Care
is: How does biomedical knowledge support health care related solutions?
The courses follow the development of medical interventions from basic
science to the integration into routine clinical practice, “from cell to
society”. Some courses focus more on the biomedical mechanisms of
disorders and how human development is regulated and can be disturbed.
Other courses focus more on health care aspects (prevention,
diagnostics, care and treatment) and societal impacts. Students will
learn more about the challenges and steps in translation of biomedical
knowledge to public health and clinical practice. The minor BTHC is
coordinated by Dr. Lidewij Henneman
