The topic of HPE, and particularly medical school admissions policies has always received a lot of public and political attention in the Netherlands. Throughout the years, research findings have contributed to changes from a lottery procedure to multi-step selection processes, and recently the possibility to use lottery again was announced. Within this, concerns about how this may affect student diversity have increased.

The presentation will highlight findings regarding the effectiveness of lottery and selection procedures, stakeholder views, and issues of diversity and equity.
