ACS PhD-retreat: the first edition!

ACS PhD-retreat: the first edition!

This year the first edition of the Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences PhD retreat took place on the 14th and 15th of March in Conference hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten, in Soesterberg. It was a great succes!

The idea for the retreat was initiated by ACS directors Jolanda van der Velden and Bert Groen and was enthusiastically received by members of the educational committee of the VUmc. Sharon Remmelzwaal and Marloes van den Berg, both PhD-students and members of the educational committee, were happy to put this plan into action. As a committee our main focus was to bring PhD-students within ACS together, getting to know each other’s research projects and, of course, have some fun and relax! This was quite a challenge because we wanted to offer the attending PhD-students a chance to present their research projects, without a jam-packed schedule you’ll sometimes see at other scientific conferences.

Of you attended the retreat please fill in this survey so we can improve the retreat for next year!
