Hi guys, my name is Robbin Klaassen (28). At the moment I’m busy completing the last part of my 5th year of med school at the University of Groningen. This past year I’ve completed clerkships in several surgically oriented fields, with orthopaedics being one of the best. Before attending med school, I graduated and worked as a pharmacist. Since my switch, I quickly discovered my love for anatomy and the human musculoskeletal system. I enjoy letting anatomical structures guide me through the process of clinical reasoning.

In my spare time I enjoy doing sports, I’ve recently started playing padel. I’ve lived in Groningen for 9 years now, I can say it’s one of the most fun cities in The Netherlands. Come join us this summer for a week full of learning, exciting activities and fun. We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Hi everyone, my name is Angad Bedi (21). I am in the fourth year of medical school at the university of Groningen. At the moment I am doing orthopedic oncology research in Boston.

I love to play tennis and football in my free time. Hope to see you all in The Netherlands soon, looking forward!

Hii! I am Nynke Boonstra, I am 20 years old and come from the Netherlands. I am in my third year of the medicine bachelor's at the RUG. Even though I come from the Netherlands I choose to study in English since I like the international approach and meeting fellow students from all over the world!

Next to studying I make puzzles, play sports, enjoy music and a lot more. Also, I am currently doing a pilot project in the gynecologic/oncology department. 

Looking forward to meeting you next year!

Best tip to survive the medicine study here: stealing the gross but free coffee, and making it better by mixing it with chocolate milk ;)

My name is Yannick van Duyn (25) and I am a 6th-year medical student at the University of Groningen. At the moment I am busy doing my last internship at the department of orthopedics in the Medical Centre Leeuwarden. I just finished my Trauma Surgery internship at the hospital in Emmen. After this, I will complete my master's thesis in the field of orthopedics at the Medical center Leeuwarden. 

In my free time, I like to play different kinds of sports. Football, tennis, padel and wakeboarding are my favorite. I hope to see you guys next summer in Groningen, “the city of students”.

Hi everyone! My name is Beaudine Dizij (19) and I will take care of the social program for the Summer School. Right now, I am in my second year of Med School at the University of Groningen. Because I have done gymnastics for 15 years and therefore have always been involved in Sports Medicine and the workings of the musculoskeletal system, my interest in this medical field only grew.

In my free time, I like to go to the gym, discover cute lunch places with my friends and go out with my housemates! 

I’m looking forward to meeting you from all over the world and showing you around the beautiful city of Groningen!
