Radboudumc's master’s program in Biomedical Sciences (BMS) is undergoing several changes.
In the new program the student chooses a Radboudumc research institute as a learning environment, which implies a choice for one of three associated master specialisations in:
- Molecular life sciences (Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences; RIMLS)
- Health sciences (Radboud Institute for Health Sciences; RIHS)
- Medical neuroscience (Donders Center for Neuroscience; DCN)
With the help of a mentor and available researchers they develop an individual study plan that includes courses, internships, a literature thesis, and other learning activities. This all rests on a growing awareness that both the development of a professional identity and the effectiveness of learning are strongly improved if students are welcomed and treated as starting colleagues within a research environment.
