As a part of the Orientation Week Leiden (OWL), The faculty of Medicine (LUMC) of Leiden University welcomed over 50 new international students. They were welcomed with a tour through the academic hospital.
The goal of the OWL is to show students the city of Leiden and introduce them to the university. During the faculty morning at the LUMC, students received more information about studying at the LUMC, student association M.F.L.S., and got a guided tour through the Anatomic museum. The students also got to meet LUMC dean Prof Pancras Hogendoorn who welcomed them and was open to questions.
Last month we kicked off the pilot study on housing and health, set up by the TU Delft | Global Initiative, Leiden Center for Applied Bioscience (LCAB) and LUMC Global in which 6 groups, consisting of students from all institutes, joined forces to analyse the correlation between spatial conditions of residential neighbourhoods and buildings, and health. All groups developed a comparative analysis of two neighbourhoods in The Hague, with each group looking at different neighbourhoods. Last week, on November 10, they presented their findings and suggestions on the central theme: how do we build a pandemic proof and healthy city?
The Globalization, Accessibility, Innovation, and Care (GAIC) Network has released its 2022 Annual Report. The report showcases how the network has grown into an international, interdisciplinary academic network through the studying of changes in society, access to health care, and global changes in demographics and technology. “GAIC links inquiry of digital innovation, health and humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies. By investigating extraordinary phenomena in different places, a comparative and critical perspective with regards to findings is encouraged“, said LUMC Prof. Dr. Mirjam van Reisen, Coordinator GAIC.
