In September you will start with a Master's programme Medical Informatics at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Amsterdam. Due to the corona crisis, the start of your education will be different than you expected and perhaps hoped for, and we can imagine that you are curious about what our education will look like from September onwards.
In the coming semester you will be able to follow all education online.This means that you follow many lectures and workgroups online via Zoom. But we don't do everything online. Opening lectures of a course will be organized on-site at the AMC. You also occasionally come to the AMC for small-scale group education and practica for which, for example, you need software that is only available in the AMC. Especially as a first year student it is important that you feel at home and get to know your fellow students. That is why we try to organize mentor sessions and other social activities on location as much as possible.
Of course we will keep a close eye on the situation and we only provide on-site education if it is safe and responsible. We follow the guidelines and policies of Amsterdam UMC, RIVM and the UvA. Because our faculty is located in the middle of Amsterdam UMC location AMC (the hospital), we are also dealing with the rules and guidelines of the AMC. These guidelines are leading. It is therefore possible that in some situations our faculty deviates from what is decided UvA-wide and also the rules at the AMC might seem stricter than those of the UvA.
