About the education committeesOn this page, you can find information about the education committees who are involved in the Medicine Bachelor’s and Master’s program.
Education Committee MedicineIt is regulated by law that every study program in Higher Education has to have an Education Committee (law on higher education and scientific research, WHW). It is also stated in law that this committee must safeguard the quality of education.
AdviceThe Education Committee can - solicited and unsolicited - advise the dean and the program director. These advises can apply to revision of the curriculum, the educational feasibility of it, the study and student guidance, the student workload and education evaluation outcomes. Furthermore, the committee presents recommendations about education and the exam regulation, and assesses the performance of the education and exam regulation.
Current issuesCurrent issues the committee addressed last year are, among others:
- workload on students and residents
- the EER/OER
- Wet Versterking Bestuurskracht (a law enhancing executive power)
IdeasIdeas about the improvement of the Medicine program may be sent to the official secretary, David Drijkoningen.
