Innovative education

Boerhaave CME offers innovative interactive and in-depth education and has developed expertise in blended learning: an integrated mix between online and face-to-face education. The advantage of blended learning is that preparation can be done in one's own time through digital work formats, such as e-learnings and knowledge clips. During the physical meeting, the knowledge is deepened by actively applying it. Examples include discussing a case study, going through case examples and having discussions with each other in working groups
