After London, Paris and Brunnen the organising committee is excited to present to you the 4th European MD/PhD conference 2015. This year's edition will be held in the beautiful city of Groningen, the Netherlands, at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) from June 5th till June7th 2015.
The committee is proud to announce the keynote speakers. We are proud to announce our keynote speakers Prof. Martin Chalfie, who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for his revolutionising discovery of the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and Prof. Howard Bauchner, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), who will tell us about the ins and outs of publishing from his own perspective as a renowned editor.
For whom and why
The conference is intended for all European PhD candidates who are doing their PhD before, during or immediately after their MD. The conference will focus on the unique role of MD/PhDs as the link between science and clinical practice. Next to that, this conference is about you, the MD/PhD candidate. The average MD/PhD candidate leads a very busy life working from one deadline to the next, performing lab work, recruiting patients, keeping up with literature, and writing manuscripts whilst all the while, striving to be a great doctor. During this conference, MD/PhD candidates will share their research, inspire and be inspired by one other.
Faculty supervisors who are responsible for the various MD/PhD programmes across Europe are also invited to attend this conference. A special meeting will be organised for faculty supervisors to discuss the goals, progress, differences and future of the various programmes.
