Summer School Transplantation Medicine
Time & Location
About The Event
At the 2019 Transplantation Medicine Summer School, participants can expect to learn about the latest and greatest innovations in the field of transplantation medicine. This summer school will be filled with presentations by world-leading doctors in the field of transplantation from the University of Groningen itself, as well as from our partner schools located in South America as well as within Europe. Special transplant patients present at the summer school will also share their own experiences as a transplant donor, or recipient, to give us an even greater understanding of whats at stake in transplanation. In addition, a live donor-nephrectomy and kidney transplant operation will be displayed during the summer school, which is a great insight into what exactly goes on during transplantation. For the duration of summer school, we will get into the nitty gritty of transplantation medicine with focus on the current advancements, and new research that has been undertaken. Students will also gather together in small groups to complete transplantation-medicine related assignments that are based on the presentations and other miscallaneous events throughout the day to further consolidate their understanding of the matters at hand. Our summer school functions to stimulate students’ interest in research from an early stage and to give students the opportunity to discuss their research findings with others while also encouraging contact between themselves and transplantation medicine specialists at our summer school.
