Take a look at our program
The educational program will include interactive lectures and workshops by specialist doctors from the departments of orthopaedic surgery, traumatology and sports medicine, among other professionals. The main themes in these lectures will be:
• Joint wear and replacement and ligament injuries
• Bone fractures and surgical repair
• Sports injuries and rehabilitation
The educational programme consists of interactive lectures taught by our very best professors, researchers and medical doctors.
Workshops will expand on the lectures and will give you hands on experience in understanding the anatomy of the knee and the technique of surgical procedures.
At the start of the summerschool we will introduce several research topics to be addressed in small groups. How can we prevent osteoporosis, what is the benefit of exercise in injury prevention and what is the optimal strategy for rehabilitation after major surgery, just to name a few. We ask you to write a research proposal and present your work in a closing scientific seminar. May the best group win!
During the course there will be room for social activities. Join us for a barbecue in the Noorderplantsoen park, a boat tour through the canals of Groningen or explore the varied nightlife throughout the city.
