Dernière mise à jour le :13/10/2016


In healthcare, numerus clausus refers to the fixed number of students who are admitted to certain courses every year, mainly in regulated healthcare professions.

The law of 7 July 2009 creates a common first year in medical, dental, pharmaceutical and midwife schools. The number of students admitted in each sector at the end of the first year is set by regulation, based on the health needs of the population.
