VU University Medical Center (VUmc) Amsterdam is the university hospital affiliated with the VU University Amsterdam.
VUmc is a university medical center. This means that doctors, specialists and nurses are being trained alongside the treatment of patients and that scientific research takes place. You may notice this, because the most up-to-date knowledge is applied in your treatment, because a specialist will come to your bedside along with a number of other specialists in training, or because you are asked to participate in scientific research. You are free to participate or not. Education and research are important, but the patient is our primary concern. You can rely on us for expert and personal treatment and care.
