"Students are much better prepared"

First-year medical students, directly out of high school in most cases, make their first steps on the way to contact with patients. The first six months of their education, Radboudumc focuses on general communication skills of students. These skills are required for doctors, but could be applied in other situations too.

Remco Haringhuizen, lecturer First-Remco-Haringhuizen-rondline medicine at Radboudumc, developed a training program around the theme Listening, summarizing and asking follow-up questions.
