University rank #66 (ARWU) ,
This summer school has a focus on clinical-scientific research, aiming at the improvement of patient care. The main goal of a Medical Sciences School is recruiting young potentials, i.e. enthusiastic and talented students who are attracted by combining patient care with doing scientific research. The Transplantation Medicine programme is delivered by the University of Groningen.


So a Medical Sciences School is targeting clinical-scientific research and strives for scientific co-operation and pre- and post-graduate education at an international level, trying to attract students already interested in research, e.g. students involved in the Junior Scienitific Masterclass. The intentions are to stimulate students’ interest in research from an early stage on, to allow PhD students the opportunity to report on their research subjects and to encourage contact between research project leaders. 

The Transplantation Medicine course is offered by University of Groningen.
