Preview

This chapter focuses on student participation in the Maastricht Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences medical curriculum. At FHML, student participation has been consistently high, even after changes in the Dutch law on university decision-making about ten years ago, which substantially curbed the influence of internal advisory bodies in Dutch institutions of higher education, thereby strengthening the decision-making power of university and faculty boards. The conditions for student participation, the institutionalization of student participation, organization of student participation, and the student perspective on problem-based learning are discussed.

Keywords: PBL; FHML; internal advisory boards; university decision-making; student involvement; medical curriculum
