About Us

University Hospital of Antwerp promotes public health through education, research and services about which it communicates transparently at all times. It reflects on medicine and health through evidence-based action and opts for an open, interdisciplinary approach.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences emphasizes the link between education, research and clinical practice,  interdisciplinary approach and international dimension.

The faculty conducts innovative societal and interdisciplinary research aimed at (inter)national excellence. The faculty encourages fundamental and applied research and its valorisation. Collaboration is a crucial prerequisite, within the University of Antwerp as well as with other universities, research institutions and other organisations on various levels of the healthcare system.
