Teaching methods and practical training in medical schools: the case of Maastricht

  • H. Philipsen


In September 1974 the first fifty students were enrolled in the new medical faculty of the State University of Limburg at Maastricht, the most southern city of the Netherlands. This new medical faculty was not only established to increase the training and educating capacity of physicians. A main objective was to design a new curriculum which was more up to date, acknowledging the changes in medical care and its organization in modern society. To realize this objective, the initial staff had to specify the ideal characteristics of a new medical faculty contrary to the traditional type of medical faculty.
