The Academic Medical Centre (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) AMC

The Academic Medical Center (AMC) is the most prominent medical center in the Netherlands as well as one of the largest hospitals. The AMC complex houses the university hospital and the medical faculty of the University of Amsterdam, as well the Netherlands Institute for Brain Research, the medical department of the Royal Tropical Institute and the Dutch Ophthalmic Research Institute. Also a number of biotech companies – partly AMC spin-offs - are located on the premises. This concentration of expertise makes the AMC ‘more than just a university hospital’ and provides a breeding ground for fruitful scientific collaboration.
