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.
Every individual is unique and this individuality is largely determined by variations in the genomic DNA that are present at birth. This blueprint forms the basis of who we are. Genome variation not only determines hair and eye colour, but also predisposition to disease and physical reactions to medication.
This course focuses on the molecular mechanisms that turn a normal cell into a cancer cell. We will explore the regulation of cell cycle progression, the control of transcription regulation and the signalling networks that enable cells to execute vital processes such as growth, division and migration, and how malfunctioning of these processes may lead to tumour formation and metastasis.
Upcoming summer we will offer a unique course especially designed for eye care students, both orhtoptist and optometrist, which covers all the ins and outs of Diabetes Mellitus. Besides giving a complete background we will discuss the diabetes care in different countries, the ocular and systemic complications and their treatments as well as the social impact of the disease.
During the course you will learn the principles of motor learning and behaviour change according to the latest scientific findings and how these principles can be translated into useful tools for therapists. You will be introduced to the value of Cesar Kinetics in daily life activities, connected to the different life stages (childeren, adults, elderly). You will receive lectures and skill lessons on the topics above. Furthermore you will experience behaviour change and motor learning yourself.
This course is an intensive program about care and communication related to patients with head and neck cancer. You will visit health care institutes in the Netherlands and be inspired by experienced teachers. The program exists of lectures,workshops, excursions to see clinical practices and presentations of fellow students. By attending this course, you will become aware of the ways in which health problems outside your field of expertisemay affect the type of treatment you offer a patient.
This course will teach you the theoretical foundations of participatory evaluation and the practical skills necessary for conducting it. Key subjects include: participatory evaluation; complex problems; healthcare innovations; frame-reflective analysis; program verification, situational validation, societal-level vindication and social choice; interviewing techniques; coherence analysis; validation and justification; transformative evaluation; and transition management.
This introductory Level 1 course explores the scientific and social aspects of disease and disability in a global context through seven case studies: water and health in an overcrowded world; pain; alcohol; screening for breast cancer; chronic lung disease; trauma and accidents; and visual impairment.
Outstanding BSc and MSc students, and PhD candidates who have a clear focus on infection biology are invited to this Summer School, where deeper knowledge of the modern methods in infection biology will be gained.
The AxAlpS school aims at proposing an interdisciplinary survey on axonal biology and its important implications in disease. It will be organized in different sessions with talks encompassing development, biology, degeneration and regeneration of axons. Strong focus will be given to the mechanistic aspects of axonal growht and guidance, their derangement in disease, and the opportunity for their exploitation for therapy.
IBS offers a one-semester Intensive English Language Programme with 300 hours of English followed by a one-semester preparation for medical studies.
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.
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.
