In 2020 the 27th edition of the Summer School on Pediatrics will take place in Groningen! For two weeks, medical students from various countries all over the world will come to Groningen and the University Medical Center of Groningen (UMCG).
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 will be divided into small groups to perform research.
These groups will benefit from daily supervision by experienced research coaches. The coaches will be present to familiarise the participants with the research process and programs. They will also guide them in their efforts to come up with a proposal that will be 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 will get to know each other. They will become acquainted with the Dutch culture and the student life in Groningen.
