The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre is a fully integrated medical school, biomedical research facility and university hospital. The department of pathology is a modern, fully equipped facility and thus, one of the leading pathology institutes in Europe where teaching, science and clinical services are integrated.
The focus of the research is on translational medicine and its specialized pathologists are involved in several international teaching projects, including the WHO-classification project (Slootweg, head and neck cancer; Wesseling, brain tumors; van Krieken, hematopoietic system and digestive tract).
Teaching is done for multiple curricula using advanced technology including digitized slides and e-learning. The department of pathology is responsible for reaching both general and special pathology in the curricula of the Medical faculty (Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Dentistry), the faculty of Natural Sciences (medical biology, molecular life sciences) at the Radboud University Nijmegen; Technical Medicine at the Technical University Twente and Food and Health at the University for Agriculture Wageningen. For these curricula multipurpose modules have been developed with interactive digitized microscopy sessions. All teaching is done by pathological and medical biologists, coordinated by Dr G van Muijen under the responsibility of the chairman, Prof van Krieken. The courses are highly appreciated by the curriculum committees and the students. The course for medical school was voted the best overall course in 2008.
The department is also involved in many postgraduate courses in various areas of pathology, including neuropathology, renal pathology, hematopathology and pathology of the g.i.-tract. Furthermore, the department of pathology has been involved in several international scientific collaborations, including EU funded programs.
P3 will participate in the WP1 activities where necessary and will undertake the organisation of the 3rd consortium meeting. P3 will specifically be involved in WP2 (Requirement analysis & specifications, Dutch version and testing of the HIPON System), WP3 (provision of material for the e-modules and the virtual portfolio in Dutch), WP4 (HIPON Test in Dutch and the definition of criteria for selection for all implemented HIPON Test), WP5 (dissemination material and information days), WP6 (transfer of results to target groups, integration of HIPON System in RUMC curriculum and in events and activities, set-up of Multimedia advertising multilingual spot) and WP7 (evaluation report on HIPON System and Exploitation Plan).
