Radboudumc's master’s program in Biomedical Sciences (BMS) is undergoing several changes. In the new program the student chooses a Radboudumc research institute as a learning environment, which implies a choice for one of three associated master specialisations in molecular life sciences (Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences; RIMLS), health sciences (Radboud Institute for Health Sciences; RIHS), or medical neuroscience (Donders Center for Neuroscience; DCN). With the help of a mentor and available researchers they develop an individual study plan that includes courses, internships, a literature thesis, and other learning activities. This all rests on a growing awareness that both the development of a professional identity and the effectiveness of learning are strongly improved if students are welcomed and treated as starting colleagues within a research environment.

To introduce RIHS to the students, we organized an introductory day on Wednesday August 31st. The program included an introductory lecture by scientific director Bart Kiemeney, informal meetings with RIHS mentors Wietske Kievit, Esther Tanck and Femmie de Vegt, a Meet & Greet market, and round tours (e.g. Biobank, AYA platform, MiTEC, ReShape). At the Meet & Greet market all RIHS research themes were presented by means of posters with the research topics of RIHS (junior) Principal investigators and poster or laptop presentations by PhD candidates and postdocs.

We would like to thank all participants for their enthusiasm and welcome all master students to our institute!
