Taskforce Faculty Development

The Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) offers MUMC+ staff a variety of activities to help them fulfil their educational and teaching responsibilities in the best possible way.The programme is designed to meet the requirements of educational practice at FHML, but individual needs will also be attended to. 

Activities are mainly conducted in small groups with educational methods that are interactive and varied. Participation in one of the educational tracks will be recorded in the faculty’s education file. A number of our courses have accreditation for general continuing education requirements. All courses are offered in the English language.


Timeline DocProf

















All new academic staff (WP) attends the ‘Introductory course to learning principles of PBL’. In this one morning course the principles of PBL are introduced shortly. 

After attending the introductory course new staff members with educational tasks attend the course tutoring skills (focus on guiding groups) or the course mentoring skills (focus on guiding and coaching of individuals).

After having gained some educational expertise, staff members can start the University Teaching Qualification (UTQ). This course focuses on educational design, delivery, assessment, evaluation, reflection and collaboration. The UTQ certificate is a precondition for all educational roles on B- and C-level.

To meet the participatory requirements of all courses attendance and active involvement are required.
