A new generation of professionals
In the new Medical Humanities programme, master's students will tackle complex problems in the health domain. Using creative work forms, they look at issues from different perspectives and learn to look beyond boundaries. Boundaries that regularly create obstacles in practice.
Reading the same poem with colleagues clearly revealed the different interpretations.
Interdisciplinary education teaches students to deal with knowledge differently and jettison preconceptions. In order to prepare them for the changes in the health domain.
Each subject is taught by a teaching duo from the Faculty of Medicine and Humanities, which makes the programme unique. Humanities students learn from the quick decision-making skills of the Medicine students and doctors learn to reflect differently through the Humanities students.
What kind of job will I get? The variety of internships reflects the diversity of the field. Students can investigate how the patient association can improve communication, or go more in the editorial direction by creating stories for the Psychiatry Story Bank, a policy function within education or organising medical conferences. Central to this is communicating with society and being interdisciplinary. Enthusiastic? You can apply for next academic year. The programme can be followed full-time and part-time. Do you work in the care domain? The programme is still looking for new internships for students.
We encourage this cross-pollination through public dialogues, research and education.
The New Utrecht School
The master is part of the New Utrecht School. This interdisciplinary institutional platform has existed since 2017 that provides cross-fertilisation between healthcare professionals, artists, civil society actors and academics.
The next public dialogue will be on 30 January with Hester de Ruiter, Manon Kluitmans and Casper Schoenmaker. Keep an eye on the agenda.
