Junior Scientific Masterclass

The Junior Scientific Masterclass (JSM) provides support to medical students who are interested in doing scientific research in addition to the regular degree programme. The Ubbo Emmius Fund (UEF) aides this programme by raising additional funds through telephone fundraising campaigns, crowdfunding and other fundraising methods. Since the cooperation with the UEF in 2010 already more than 250.000 euros has been raised and more than thirty students received a scholarship!

UMCG

Fundraising

Since 2010 the UEF organises each year a telephone fundraising campaign to ask alumni of the medical faculty to support the JSM-scholarships. Additional, donations can be made through the crowdfunding platform. You can still donate to this project and/or share it easily on social media. The Van der Meer-Boerema Foundation also supports talented JSM students who do research in the field of oncology by awarding them a scholarship.

About the Junior Scientific Masterclass

The JSM was set up in 1999 for the purpose of providing medical students who were interested in doing scientific research extra opportunities in addition to the regular degree programme. The ideal is to ensure that in the future more medical doctors will do clinical research as well as taking care of their patients. At present there is a great shortage of physician-scientists.

The JSM programme began cautiously with just a few course units, but has now developed into a specially adapted professional programme that medical students can take concurrently with their medical or dental degree programme. The JSM offers a range of courses that start in the first year, expand in the second and third years and, once the student has obtained a Bachelor’s degree, even offer a chance to apply for a position to do PhD research during the Master’s programme (the (D)MD/PhD programme).
