Educating and training students for future scientific leadership
The Graduate School of Medical Sciences (GSMS) trains and educates excellent researchers and promotes excellent research. The GSMS is responsible for all Research Master and PhD education and training programmes within the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), including the 'Junior Scientific Masterclass’, a special track for talented medical students.The Research Master and PhD programmes of the GSMS cover a wide area of research, intended for students with a (bio)medical, psychological, pharmaceutical or other background.
Research within the UMCG ranges from fundamental to patient-oriented (clinical) research. The UMCG has organized all its research in five Research Institutes that each have developed research programmes around specific aims and objectives. The five Research Institutes collaborate in the GSMS to educate and train students for future scientific leadership.
