On Wednesday 3 June, the first Radboudumc-graduation took place in 'de Aula' (Radboud University) in accordance with the new RIVM guidelines. Floor Ploos van Amstel, department of Medical Oncology, graduated for her study on a method for distress screening in patients with female cancer.

In March, it was decided to either postpone graduation ceremonies or to use videoconferencing instead. This was a result of tightened measurements in response to the corona virus outbreak. However, from 1st of June, the Dutch government allowed meetings with a maximum number of people being 30, but only if the the 1.5 distance policy is respected. This means that graduations can continue to take place, though with limited number of visitors. Most of the graduations can be followed online through live streaming.
