Yes it is possible to combine your Vitality & Ageing internship with your 16 weeks (LUMC) Medicine internship. In most cases you will do your 16 week Medicine internship on a V&A topic. Afterwards, you can get exemption for your V&A internship. If you are interested, let us know as soon as possible to discuss the possibilities. For more information you can contact our internship coordinator Carla Bakker C.H.Bakker@lumc.nl.

We think it is important you are able to connect with your fellow students in real life. However, the past year we experienced that there are also advantages of online education, such as added flexibility, online lectures from experts abroad and lesser travel time. Therefore, we decided to aim for a hybrid form of education coming study year. What does this mean?

Fulltime students will come together at the LUMC campus twice a week on Thursdays and Fridays. On Mondays and Tuesdays you will follow live online lectures. For part-time students there will be an on campus day on Fridays and a live online session on Thursdays. (International) students who cannot visit the campus, will be offered an online solution to join.

For more information, you can always send us an email: masterva@lumc.nl
