Nursing-, physiotherapy- and other health-care related students will learn to work in multi-disciplinary teams. Students will acquire new skills (21st century skills) and will get familiar with the state-of-the-art in health-care technology. These will be taught in relation to global 21st century health-care problems like lifestyle-related illnesses (diabetics, metabolic syndrome) and concepts of pain in biological, mental, social, (inter)cultural  context. In this multi-disciplinary working environment and intercultural context we challenge students to experience elements of their own lifestyle and to combine this with their role as health-care professional. The course is very interactive and includes visits to health care institutes and technology labs.
