About this courseThe goal of this course is to actively support PhD candidates in their progress reflection so that they stay in the lead of their own learning process. We aim to create a short and impactful course well embedded in the regular learning process of a PhD candidate.
Working in small groups on the first day of the course, you will explore what needs to be done to finish your PhD successfully and efficiently. You will learn what you require to achieve your final goals. You will reflect upon questions like: “How do you recognize and deal with the challenges that still lie ahead?”, “Is my research progressing enough to make a realistic planning of my thesis?”, “What can help me further with my project?” and “How can I discuss my plans with my supervisor?”
We will end the first day of the course with an interactive session with Radboudumc PhD alumni that now work in different fields of work. This session will help you in your reflection on the question: “How do I get optimally prepared for the next steps after completion of my thesis?”
In the morning of the second day of the course you will obtain a more in depth understanding of the dynamic of your own personality traits by using a personality test (MBTI). In the afternoon you will get the opportunity to practice a personalized case based upon your reflection on the first day of the course. We will work in small groups in different roleplays.
Ultimately, a personalized plan will be designed to be incorporated into your day to day work schedule. Throughout the course, you will interact and network with your peers. This will also promote the peer group learning experience.
We are convinced that this course will give valuable insights in the last phase of your promotion.

Groups who had attended this program were very enthusiastic about this course. This is what they say afterwards:
- It was very useful to make a pause in my work and take some time to think about my learning process, career decisions and communication skills.
- I think it is very nice that Radboudumc focuses on developing our 'soft skills'. This course was actually very useful!
- Thanks to everyone involved in setting up this program. It has really opened my eyes and we all need a point to reflect. I wish everyone involved the best of luck with the program and beyond.
- I was a bit skeptical in the beginning of the course, but I was pleasantly surprised.
