Human medicine deals with issues how to maintain human health conditions, prevent from illness and treat it. Human medicine is a health science based on biomedical research. The study field has many multidisciplinary fields, such as biomedical engineering, disaster medicine, hospital medicine, environmental medicine, travel medicine, evolutionary medicine, forensic medicine, medical ethics, sexual medicine, addiction medicine, laser medicine, therapeutics, pain medicine, nosology, medical humanities, pharmacogenomics, urgent care and etc. The field has a wide spectrum of health professionals: bioengineers, pharmacists, therapists, nurses, laboratory scientists and etc. Most of the basic sciences of the field are: genetics, immunology, neurology, psychiatry, neuroscience, microbiology, epidemiology, molecular biology, histology, toxicology, cytology, biostatistics, pharmacology, nutrition science, biophysics, medical physics, biochemistry, pathology, embryology, photobiology, endocrinology, anatomy, radiobiology and biomechanics.
Cardiovascular diseases touch the lives of many patients. In this course we will focus on hot topics in cardiovascular research. Both clinical research and research carried out in preclinical labs will be covered. Students taking part will follow lectures, work on a group assignment and take part in lab practicals.
In this summer course you work in multidisciplinary groups (f.e. medicine, nursing, physiotherapy and speech-language therapy). You will start from your own profession and your knowledge about diagnosis and treatment of the problems of patients after stroke. Then you learn how to prepare and participate in multidisciplinary discussions and interactions. You enlarge your knowledge about stroke and about other professions. For this we use the the ICF-system. You will also learn how to give a presentation.
An ageing population, mounting healthcare costs and technological advancements are beginning to threaten the sustainability of the contemporary healthcare system. It is widely accepted that primary care can offer solutions to these changing demands that hospital-based care cannot.
The aim of this summer school is to gather together junior and senior scientists working at each of these levels to promote integration of knowledge, theory, and methodology across multiple fields.
You will learn how infections are diagnosed, how to study changes in the incidence of diseases and investigate strategies for treatment and control through detailed case studies. You will also have the chance to study a disease or disease-related topic in detail.
Ultrasound has become a common tool for diagnostic and interventional procedures in anaesthesia and has replaced the use of non-converted sound (percussion and auscultation) in the physical examination of the patient. This is known as Point-of-Care (POC) ultrasound. POC ultrasound technology has been integrated into an array of anaesthetic procedures for inpatient and outpatient care of adults and children, including emergency care, intensive care and pain therapy.
In order to fully understand the neuronal substrate of human cognition, we need to start viewing the working brain as a network.Many neurological and mental disorders are viewed as the result of a malfunction at the network level.
Mitochondria are central to the regulation of cellular growth and energy production. The abnormal functioning of these organelles and associated pathways is closely linked to neuromuscular disease, ageing, cancer and metabolic syndrome/diabetes.
This course illustrates the intricate balance between infection and immunity in the human host. The course will start by refreshing your knowledge in Immunology and Microbiology. Themes that will be discussed include; Memory in the Immune System, Immune Tolerance, Intracellular Pathogens, Clinical Immunology, Clinical Bacteriology and Public Health.
Learn about how regenerative medicine may hold the potential to bring (human and animal) therapies from the lab into the clinic. The convergence of science, technology and medicine in Utrecht are highlighted in this week-long course. This week-long course is comprised of meeting experts, patients, hands-on bench work, and demonstrations.
This course will start with a specific research topic of your choosing. Under the individual guidance of health scientists specialised in epidemiology and biostatistics, you will learn how to transform your topic into a research question and research design. You discuss your progress with the teacher(s) during each class.
This course deals with a subject of importance to us all – our genes, which is an area at the forefront of developments in medical science. You’ll examine the patterns of inheritance of genes, how genes function and why there are differences between individuals and between populations. Learn about human genetics and health issues is one of a series of 100-hour flexible online courses introducing fascinating topics in science.
