Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted at seven faculties: the Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry, with programmes offered in almost every field. Over time, the UvA has risen to international prominence as a research university, gaining an excellent reputation in both fundamental and socially relevant research. The UvA's thriving doctoral programmes provide an excellent foundation for engaging in high-quality teaching and research.
The AMC is first of the eight Dutch university medical centers. The AMC hosts the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Medical Informatics of the University of Amsterdam. The AMC combines patient care, education, and research in numerous multi-disciplinary interconnections. This has resulted in many research lines combining the clinical practice and fundamental, high tech laboratories into translational research: the translation of high-tech solutions into clinical applications. In collaboration with the city of Amsterdam, the AMC stimulates the development of a Medical Business Park with innovative industry and research institutes in the field of medical care, bio-sciences, and life-sciences.
