In your first year in the Medical Engineering Master's program you will sign up for an externship. This is your chance to expand your knowledge of one of the clinical disciplines you explored in your electives and clinical modules. You will perform hands-on research for three months.
You will apply for an externship either in the Netherlands or another country. This will give you a good idea of the kind of research projects being performed. You will gain research experience and develop the professional work ethic and independence you need for your graduation project.
