At the 2021 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 full of fascinating presentations, fun workshops, and challenging assignments. Experts from all around the world will give lectures on the current advances and research in the field. Transplant donors and recipients will also join us to share their own experiences, which will allow participants to get an insight into the daily life of transplant patients. You might even get the chance to watch a live transplant operation! Participants will also gather together in small groups to complete transplantation-medicine-related assignments, which will increase their understanding. Our goal is to stimulate discussions among participants and students’ interest in research from an early stage. We will also encourage contact between themselves and transplantation medicine specialists at our summer school.

We will be able to offer the physical program only to students living in Groningen/the Netherlands. All international students are welcome to join us online!
