MBE is looking for new volunteers!

Medical Business Education (MBE) is looking for young enthusiastic (soon to be) doctors/healthcare professionals who’d like to voluntarily help MBE. 
MBE is a non-profit foundation, founded by young healthcare professionals. They are all volunteers that aim to provide our peers with education on Medical Business. They are actively seeking people to help develop and advertise education on management in healthcare for young healthcare professionals. They have already developed a yearly 4day Summer Academy on Leadership, Strategy, Finance and Operations in healthcare. With the help of leading experts, they have also developed Online Courses that are open and freely accessible. In addition, they provide the opportunity to join a board of directors for a few days.

And they need help with these projects!

They meet every 3 weeks either through Skype or a live meeting and it’s preferable (not mandatory) that you can occasionally visit a partner during working hours. The invested amount of time per week ranges from 2-6 hours/week, with 3 hours on average.

They offer a unique experience, a network of leading experts, a lot of fun, and the opportunity to learn on Medical Business subjects.
Are you interested? Mail your CV and short motivation before October 10th to education@medicalbusiness.nl (also see: www.medicalbusiness.nl)
Do note; we focus on the Dutch healthcare system and healthcare professionals and as such, we are a Dutch organization. Speaking and understanding Dutch is highly recommended.

Grand opening ceremony of the Louis Bonaparte Society: 26th of September

The Louis Bonaparte Society is a society aimed at stimulating interaction and interdisciplinary discussion among PhD’s and Master students from different fields in an informal setting. They gather over dinner and drinks in small groups in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in order to learn from each other, to share and test ideas. Larger meetings happen throughout the year in the form of TEDx-like events, random picnics in the park or excursions. They combine intellectual exchange with friendship and fun. 
They are organizing our Grand Opening for the new academic year on Monday, 26 September at 19.00. If you want to join and get to know them and the fellows, sign up herebannerwithsubtitles
We hope to see you there!

PhACE Invitation 2016

Dear PhD candidate,

Career opportunities after a PhD are a highly debated topic among PhD candidates. The majority of candidates starting a PhD want to end up in academia. However this is a difficult career step and not always a possibility within your reach. Utrecht University developed the PhD Activating Career Event to help you with future career steps (PhACE).

PhACE gives insight into the great value and different career opportunities of your PhD. As doctoral candidates, you are top academic performers with a broad scope of experience who may fit in many different sectors of employment. PhACE brings people together that successfully completed their PhD with different career tracks. During a two day event, organized by PhACE, these people want to share their professional experiences with you! Furthermore they want to explain the skills that are needed to transfer to areas other than academia.

During these two days you will participate in a range of workshops. These workshops will help you to explore your personal strengths and skills and create awareness of personal weaknesses to help you surpass yourself!
