Practical matters
  • The course is successfully completed when you attend 7 evenings and also submit an essay on a subject that connects to an evening of your choice. After completing these components you will receive a certificate. For students who enrol in the GH&TM course from April 2018 onwards: for completion of the course you need to have attended 9 out of 11 evenings and submit an essay. For those who started earlier: the current 7 out of 11 evenings are maintained (and of course you are very much encouraged to participate in more!). Please note: the online pre-departure course is not a requirement for UU Medicine students anymore. 
  • An attendance card will be distributed on the first evening you attend the GH&TM course. Please make sure that it is signed off every evening you attend, this takes place at the end of the evening.
  • The essayform is available here. After completion, please send your essay to globalhealth@umcutrecht.nl. We have entered into a partnership with the IFMSA-NL magazine 'Global Medicine' and a selection of the essays will be published here.
  • Follow the UMC Utrecht International Office Facebook page to stay informed about the course programme and speakers. Registered students will also receive course information by email.
