Ready to meet tomorrow's complex medical challenges and approaches? Biomedical Technology and Physics (f.k.a. Medical Natural Sciences) is a collaboration between the researchers of the Science department of VU and the medical centers VUmc and AMC (together Amsterdam UMC). This combination will teach you how to translate research into the fundamentals of physics, biology and chemistry into innovative solutions for healthcare. A multidisciplinary background like this will equip you perfectly for tomorrow's approaches to medical research, in all their complexity.

You will have approximately one year of courses and one year of internships. Each period you have the option to choose 2 out of 3 offered courses, aimed to deepen your physical knowledge, to learn about modeling and image processing, electronics, or about entrepreneurship. You will learn of modern day clinical practice, problems and technologies, a/o by a series of lectures offered by clinicians. You can choose for a more fundamental biophysical direction or for a more clinically applied direction. An important part of the master is the internships in the research groups at the Amsterdam UMC or at the VU.

Waarom aan de Amsterdam VU?

The Master's programme in Biomedical Technology and Physics is a unique opportunity for students who want to combine scientific subjects with practical application and fundamental research in a clinical setting. Market research shows that graduates of this programme have a bright future.
For example, you will be able to:

  • Develop new possibilities and techniques for medical diagnosis and treatment at an university or company;
  • Research ways of applying technology to treat various diseases;
  • Work on clarifying the molecular basis of various diseases;
  • Consult companies or hospitals on management and medical equipment issues.


Studieprogramma

Continuing your studies
After completing your Master's programme, you can conduct PhD research at a university. Graduates with excellent grades can apply for one of our PhD student positions. This is normally awarded for four years, during which the student is expected to complete a research project. The main task of a PhD student is to conduct research resulting in a thesis.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

A Master's degree in Biomedical Technology and Physics means you will be able to work in clinics, medical research institutes or for biomedical and pharmaceutical companies. If you decide to specialize further as a clinical physicist, clinical chemist or clinical computer scientist, a Master's degree will entitle you to take part in the postgraduate programme you need to achieve your goal. And there are professional Master's programmes in biomedical scientific subjects, such as toxicology.
