paediatric rehabilitationPosition of the Course
In 2002 the Association of the Ghent University has been founded. Internationalisation is part of the mission state of our institution. Our institutions have been involved in international activities for a long time. It order to offer international experiences for local students and a valuable learning experience to all international students, we felt the increasing need to develop an international and interdisciplinary joint module.
The International Programme focuses on ‘Paediatric rehabilitation’ as a central theme. During the course we focus on the different aspects of the early childhood and development, the medical interventions and the rehabilitation of children within the setting of the hospital, but also on the inclusion of within the society.
