Leiden Oxford Transplantation Summer School (LOTS) Medicine Science

The Leiden Oxford Transplantation Summer School, LOTS, is a collaboration between the university of Leiden and Oxford. The school is organised primarily for biomedical and medical students that are in the beginning of their studies and are interested in transplantation and (clinical) research. The summer school takes place in Leiden and lasts 3 and a half days in total. The school is set up for a small group of students (around 20 students in total) so there is plenty of interaction. During the summer school, you will learn about all aspects of transplantation and work with students from all around the world. The program exists of interactive lectures, patient interviews, small group assignments and games about clinical transplant cases. In the end every group will write a proposal for scientific innovation to improve the outcome for transplant recipients. And of course, there is also time to have fun and get to know each other!
