I AM Summer SchoolIFMSA-UvA is proud to present this year’s International Amsterdam Medical Summer School, which will be extra-large after the highly successful edition last year. We invite all (para-)medical students to join us in Amsterdam from 18-27 July 2017, where we will focus on the challenges a doctor faces when he sees himself confronted with a patient suffering from a rare disease. To prepare the students they will study this subject from the view of different stakeholders, namely that of patients, researchers, pharmaceutical companies and international politics. The students will critically investigate the role these stakeholders play in the care for patients with a rare disease, but all the while they will be continuously challenged to analyse how the doctor as care manager and spider in the stakeholder’s web can guide and treat their patients.
I AM Summer School aims to only contain a small number of classical lectures. Participants are expected to fulfil an active role in which they will be doing research, interviewing all the stakeholders, including patients and practicing how to work with a patient suffering from a rare disease that possibly knows more about his condition than his physician. In this summer school students will master extensive theoretical knowledge and practical skills to direct their own roles as physicians of the future.
There will also be an extensive social programme in which the participants will get to know each other and, of course, Amsterdam!
Get inspired together with (para-)medical students from all parts of the world. Develop skills that students aren't taught in classical curricula and get in touch with facets of the daily life of a doctor for which you will not be prepared in your regular studies. I AM Summer School offers its students an important step to becoming a 'complete doctor'.
