General Information

This year the 25th edition of the Summer School on Pediatrics is organized 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.

During this Summer School you are offered a varied educational program. The Summer School combines clinic and research in many different aspects of pediatrics. This is presented in the form of lectures and workshops given by some of our finest professors and doctors.

Besides the interesting and challenging educational program, there is a fun social program. During different activities you get to know the other participating students. You get acquainted with Dutch culture and student life in Groningen. Besides gaining experiences in the Dutch culture, all participants are given the ability to share their own culture and foreign habits during for instance the international cooking event. A trip to one of the Dutch islands, Schiermonnikoog is part of the social program. 

The main goals of the Summer School on Pediatrics are:
