Science Electives (3 ECTS)
A science elective is a JSM activity to enable enthusiastic and motivated students to get involved in current scientific research at a specific department within the UMCG. Students will be given a theoretical and practical introduction to fundamental and clinical research within the selected discipline. Various science electives are organised
