Abstract

This thesis sets out the design process of the academic program Technical Medicine at the University Twente from the perspective of an overarching question of its justification that consists of the following sub-questions: an education-related question, a design question and a research question. The question regarding the educational program concerns the ‘what and how’ that are to be learned in order to graduate as a Technical Physician. The design question aims to determine the design principles for developing the competences for appropriate and optimal technology use, by integrating diverse expert domains within the interdisciplinary context of healthcare. Finally, the research question relates to the effects of students’ competences (knowledge, skills, attitude in an authentic context) on their solving of technical medical problems, at four levels of evaluation (reaction or motivation; learning; behavioural or performance; and organisation).
