Clinical observerships for foreign students

Several departments in the UMCG offer clinical observerships for foreign students ( If you are interested in one of those internships, contact the international office by mail:


Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (diagnostic and treatment)

The medical specialty of Nuclear Medicine concerns the development, improvement and application of radiopharmaceuticals for functional imaging of different diseases (Oncology, Neurology, Cardiovascular, Inflammation and General Nuclear Medicine), with a particular emphasis on PET-CT and SPECT-CT. Nuclear Medicine also offers therapy with open sources of radioactivity in combination with quantitative diagnostic techniques. Optimal application of PET and SPECT requires a multidisciplinary approach. Physicians, chemists, pharmacologists, physicists, (molecular) biologists and information technologists share a close cooperation, using their own specific expertise.

Setup of the internship

We can provide an internship where your will be able to learn more about indications and techniques in radiology and nuclear medicine and gain some experience in interpreting imaging studies. You will work with and alongside a resident.

A shorter period in each of the 8 radiology sections as well as a longer period in 1 or 2 of the sections is possible, according to wishes and experience. This can be combined with a 1 or 2 week internship at the Nuclear Medicine department based on the interest of the student. Note that a full internship only at the department of Nuclear Medicine is not possible.

The best benefit is to be gained in the clinical phase (internship) of the medical education where you have learned about differential diagnosis.
