Abstract

This paper results from the poster exhibition of the international conference on the Structure of Medical Education in Europe, hosted by the German Rector's Conference (HRK), which took place on 10/11 October 2008 in Berlin.

In response to the European Bologna guidelines to create a European Higher Education Area in which students should become more mobile and to the need of more flexibility in higher education also, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) installed in 2004 'Academic Career Consultants' (ACCs) open to all (potential) students, national and international. The ACC deals with questions or challenges in connection with the (flexible and/or mobile) academic educational path. For the students (wanting to study at) the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of the VUB there is a full time ACC. From the five years of experience in working with medical students VUB wants to inform all involved medical education professionals on the assets of academic career consultancy. VUB also wants to invite others to help setting up a quality driven international network of ACCs.
