About the Julius Center
Together with our colleagues of UMC Utrecht, we work hard to improve patient care. As knowledge center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, we conduct multidisciplinary scientific research into new diagnosis and treatment methods. We also give education to students of medicine and biomedicine, researchers, clinicians and other professionals in healthcare, as well as provide academic primary healthcare to patients.
Structure of the division
The Julius Center is one of the eleven divisions of UMC Utrecht. We are a division without beds: as research division, we do not treat patients.
