Growth activities Julius Clinical
Julius is our Clinical Academic Clinical Research Organization (ARO or) and one of the spin-offs of the UMC Utrecht Julius Center. In 2012, Julius Clinical was able to further expand its already impressive portfolio of international clinical trial activities.
Increase educational activities
2012 was also a very good year for educational activities of the UMC Utrecht Julius Center. Perhaps the most important development was the beginning of 'Elevate', our online academy for international healthcare professionals. Elevate aims to increase the knowledge and understanding of health sciences worldwide.
The work on the continuing education of healthcare professionals also expanded. Doctors, paramedics, administrators and policy makers are finding their way to the Julius Academy for a wide range of courses and other teaching events. Post academic education for General Practitioners is now also organized by the Julius Academy.
Developments in the area
The patient care activities in the Julius Healthcare Centers in Leidsche Rijn had a fruitful year. Several important steps were taken to further innovate within academic primary care in these healthcare centers.
