In 2018 the 25th edition of the Summer School Pediatrics takes place in Groningen! For ten days, medical students from various countries all over the world come to Groningen and the University Medical Center of Groningen.

During this Summer School the participants are offered a varied educational program. The school combines clinics and research in many different fields of pediatrics. This is presented in the form of lectures and workshops given by some of our finest professors and doctors. In addition, students are divided in small groups which benefit from daily supervision by experienced research coaches. The coaches are present to familiarise the participants with the research process and programs. They also guide them in their efforts to come up with a proposal that is presented at the end of the program.

Besides the interesting and challenging educational program, there is a fun social program. During various activities the participating students get to know each other. They  become acquainted with the Dutch culture and the student life in Groningen. In addition, all participants are given the opportunity to share their own foreign habits during events such as the international cooking event that takes place during the summer school.

The main goals of the Summer School Pediatrics are:

1.     To introduce (bio)medical students to the various fields of clinical pediatrics

2.     To discuss current limitations/complications being faced today

3.     To demonstrate their translation into clinical/fundamental research questions
