The LUMC Global platform is an essential part of our goal to innovate and improve healthcare. We actively seek out opportunities for international collaboration and foster and further build upon existing international partnerships.
As an innovator, the LUMC stands for the continuous improvement of healthcare and the health of all people. As a knowledge institute with a strong international focus, we realise this mission by achieving optimal and innovative care for patients based on leading research and innovative education.
LUMC’s geographical location in Leiden Science City is exceptionally favourable. Western Europe is one of the leading regions in the world in Life Sciences & Health, with a high concentration of knowledge-intensive institutions. The province of South Holland, with its large concentration of companies in the Leiden Bio Science Park and the Medical Delta, is internationally recognised as an essential player in Life Sciences & Health.
Here, public and private parties work together on important (bio)medical and technological innovations and care renewal. We are always looking for regional, European and international connections with partners that are complementary to our objectives and that add value to improving and innovating global care, health and medicine.
LUMC Global is a platform for international connectivity in research, education and care. We reach out, stimulate, consolidate, and streamline multilateral initiatives that will generate the future leaders in health science. These leaders will transcend borders.
Our medical centre not only excels in (bio)medical education and research, but also in innovative care provision and technology. This provides us with a unique profile to make a global impact on improving healthcare and the health of all people. LUMC Global is, thus, an essential part of the organisation’s main strategy.
The LUMC Global program has already contributed to numerous initiatives for global outreach and international collaboration and connection. This way, we aim to benefit all parties involved and, ultimately, the field of medicine as a whole.
LUMC Global helped Professors Arnaud Zaldumbide and Bruno Guigas set up the Frontiers of Science course on Cutting-edge immunology: from chemistry to metabolism differently in 2020. The lectures of the course were opened up to many international students.
We completely rearranged the half minor Global Health due to this year’s pandemic, welcoming African students online to our course. Read the article here.
