Educational development and consultancy
We offer expertise in the following areas of education in the healthcare sector: curriculum design, course-based education, practical and clinical training, quality assurance, selection procedures and project management and supervision of educational development.
Project management and advice
The Center for Research and Development of Education supports the development and implementation of new curricula by making a project manager or project advisor available, usually for long-term projects (one or more years) requiring both educational expertise and expertise in the fields of process guidance and change processes.
