It is ITM’s ambition to be a vibrant, global open campus that offers science-driven and societally relevant postgraduate training, in the field of tropical medicine and international public health.
Studying at ITM means benefitting from a setting where international students, alumni and staff co-develop participatory learning, enriched by academic, professional and socio-cultural diversity. Teaching and learning methods at our Institute are adapted to the needs and expectations of the students: flexible and blended learning, international mobility and tailored student support are at the heart of ITM’s educational vision. With this approach, ITM together with its worldwide alumni, aims at playing a prominent role in tropical medicine and public health science and practice.
Every year hundreds of students and PhD researchers are trained at ITM, in expert short and postgraduate courses, advanced master’s courses and doctoral programmes. To meet the increasing demand of today’s students for deepening their research skills in the clinical and biomedical areas of tropical medicine, with the accreditation of the brand new MSc in Tropical Medicine in 2019 our Institute expanded its offer of Master of Science programmes to three.
