System developer master student
"I really liked doing my thesis at UMC. Even if I was working independently on my project, with support from my supervisor and colleagues, I got to be a part of a team from day one."

Vanja, master's student turned systems developer at UMC

"There's a lot of information and data within healthcare that can be used to help patients. I saw that UMC was using data science and machine learning to help patients within pharmacovigilance, which truly aligns with my belief that data can have a real-world impact. "
