Technical Medicine MSc students

The second year of the Master Technical Medicine (TM) consists of 4 clinical internships of 10 weeks each, the so called TM2-intersnhips. The goal of these internships is to position students in an intensive way in the work field and experience their own role in this work environment. During these internships students obtain clinically required skills and work on a medical technical research project. More information about these internships can be found on Study Guide and questions can be asked at stage-TM@tudelft.nl

The third year of the Master Technical Medicine (TM) is the graduation year with the MSc thesis as major project. Before starting this final project students will have the option to do a “Practical internship” of 15 EC. The main aim of this internship is to give students the option to experience a different work environment of choice, for example to work at a company, to study abroad or to gain clinical experience at a healthcare institution. More information about these internships can be found on Study Guide and questions can be asked at stage-TM@tudelft.nl
