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.
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 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.
The brain is the most complex and intriguing organ in the human body. It is also the gateway to being human: from the slight movement of a limb to solving complex equations and experiencing emotions; everything ultimately originates in this awe-inspiring organ. Should this organ fail to function, it will impact the very essence of our humanity.
This course it intended for students and recent graduates in physiotherapy and related fields interested in technology. Students get an introduction in the world of assistive technology (AT) and its potential to support patients as well as therapists. The focus in this summer course will be on AT to support mobility and ambulation, motor learning in rehabilitation, activity monitoring and e-rehabilitation, home adaptations and sports.
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.
Our summerschool is aimed at advanced master students and starting PhD students with the goal to teach them on recent advances in neural circuit development and plasticity from an interdisciplinary perspective. This will be achieved in two ways: first, a series of lectures by renowned international speakers and second, participants work on assignments that require extensive discussion between lecturers, organizers and participants.
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.
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.
Enroll and find out how scientific knowledge is generated and translated into personalized treatment to improve survival and quality of life of patients with cancer. Meet the UMC Utrecht's cancer researchers and medical specialists and work together with them in a multidisciplinary setting to determine treatment plans for real life patients.
This course offers you the opportunity to collaborate with nursing students and teachers from different countries about Pediatric Oncology Nursing. This course combines nursing practice and science in pediatric oncology with a focus on integrated care. The programme consists of: lectures, workshops, excursions to healthcare institutes involved in pediatric oncology and presentations of fellow students.
A substantial number of health-related studies are published each year. One of the biggest challenges is to effectively identify and use the best available knowledge for decisions and innovations in healthcare. Not surprisingly, these studies have identified several knowledge-performance gaps and performance variations among healthcare providers.
This intensive one-week course covers various aspects of neuroimaging and genetics analyses. We will start with two parallel tracks that provide a brief introduction to both imaging and genetics.
