Other disciplines

The Department of Family Medicine in Maastricht is also the home to specialists in the field of 'Care for the Elderly' and 'People with disabilities'. Although our Department does not provide Training for these disciplines, some of these specialists are appointed here.
We provide teaching and research positions.
For example: we teach obligatory courses in the second year of the medical curriculum about 'Disabilities'. Currently there is also a PhD project about medical end-of-life decisions regarding people with disabilities.
Since 2007, professor Jos Schols is appointed to our Department as Full Professor of Old Age Medicine. His chair is about 'Innovations in Health Care for the Elderly'.
