Over 100 PhD candidates attended the retreat

30 November 2017

On 23 and 24 November, PhD candidates from the RIHS gathered in Den Bosch for their annual PhD retreat. This year, we welcomed a record number of participants: over 100 PhD candidates attended the retreat.

The programme’s highlights were undoubtedly the college tour with Ronald Plasterk and the masterclass by Fiona Godlee.  Ronald Plasterk started of with some career advice for the PhD candidates, which was very valuable coming from a former scientist who went on to be a minister in two governments. Afterwards, we got to ask him everything about his career step, and views. Fiona Godlee told us in her masterclass how to deal with possible struggles concerning publishing papers.

 

Awards 
There was also room for the participants to share their research in an oral presentation or 4-slide short talk, the best of which were presented with an award. Thomas van den Heuvel (photo) won the award for best oral presentation with his presentation on ‘automated detection of maternal risk factors in developing countries’, while Anne-Floor Pouwer and Wouter Bulten won the awards for the best 4-slide short talks.

Finally, we also took the time to relax and got to know each other a bit better during the pubquiz and subsequent night out in Den Bosch. All in all, the retreat was a big success, and we hope to welcome even more people next year!
