In this module we focus on the (un)sustainability of the current healthcare system. The common thread, the core of the theme, are the challenges in care and well-being. During a teaching week, the themes are worked on through various teaching methods and various assignments. You will be introduced to the form and content of the HBO programme, to the people who work there and, of course, to each other, your fellow students who have also opted for the MiZ programme. Learning together forms the basis of the study program and a good relationship with your fellow students and the people of the study program is very important. You immediately notice from the way in which education is structured that you have to do it together, while you are assessed as an individual.
