Summer School

If the size of your group is below 12, please wait for our confirmation on whether the course will start or not.

The SUMMER SCHOOL mainly focuses on the second and third step of the TM cycle.
The program helps students to become critical consumers of medical research papers, to gather primary data on health issues through questioning and observation, and to conduct biomedical research. Students will gain an understanding of the planning of clinical research, including systematic reviews, patient registries and clinical trials, by designing an extended project in study groups, which are led by experienced members of the TM Centre.


  • Degree/ studies in health sciences (Candidate, BSc, MSc, MD, DMD, etc.) is preferred.
  • Good english communication skills are recommended (minimum B2 level, see details here).

Participants will be able to understand the concept of the healthcare delivery science as part of the translational medicine cycle.
At the end of the training, participants will learn the main points of setting up a patient registry, initiating a clinical trial, or conducting a comprehensive systematic review with meta-analysis.
Formulate a clinical question using the PICO model and identify relevant evidence from appropriate databases.
Critically appraise clinical research studies using a systematic approach.
Define the basic knowledges and skills required in translational research.
Grow the professional international network of translational researchers.
The above mentioned topics will be covered in this school in a four-week training session. Please see the schedule for a more detailed program.
