Education Physiology

The department participates and oversees teaching in Physiology for the Medical School. Maastricht University has fully adopted Problem-Based Learning (PBL), which enables us to integrate basic physiology with every other medical pre-clinical and clinical discipline in clinically relevant problems or “model” cases. The Medical School also adopted a Z-model of teaching pre-clinical disciplines throughout the entire 6-year medical curriculum. As a consequence, in the master phase, real cases presented by the medical students are physiologically analysed.

We also organize elective Physiology courses at the University College Maastricht, the Science College Maastricht and a compulsory course at the Maastricht Academy for Midwives (AVMU).

All members of the staff participate in teaching, two being fully dedicated to teaching.
