The world around us

Society looks towards UMCs in the Netherlands to innovate to the maximum and address topical health care issues by means of high-quality care and prevention. And to do this to the maximum and fast, at acceptable costs and in a sustainable way. COVID-19 has made this societal responsibility even more visible. Research and education form the driving force here. UMCs must also fulfill their role in regional, national and international networks. In this respect too, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought acceleration and intensification.

This happens frequently in the worlds of patients and of our employees and students. But also in the worlds of our partners. This is why we believe in Connecting Worlds, because each person counts.
