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.
‘How do we create a sustainable hospital?’ This is the main question the Interdisciplinary Thesis Lab ‘Sustainable Hospitals’ centers around. On February 9th, eleven (including international) master students have started their master thesis research project related to this very question. Medical Delta’s Thesis Lab and the LDE Centre for Sustainability will supervise these students during their research.
Be aware: grant open to both Dutch and English speaking individuals!
LUF scholarships from the Prof. Dr. A.E. Meinders Fund provide support to talented students and PhD candidates in the field of internal medicine. These scholarships are intended for conducting scientific research, such as a portion of a doctoral study or a scientific internship, with a focus on patient care abroad. Preference is given to clinicians over “laboratory assistants.”
Creating new sustainable relationships between the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and international counterparts is one of the core elements incorporated in the LUMC Global strategy. Through multiannual partnerships in (bio)medical research and education, we aim to contribute to global healthcare improvement. We’re therefore very excited to announce our first Global PhD candidate, Jeremia J. Pyuza, who’s at the centre of a newly set-up collaboration between Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), Tanzania and the LUMC.
