ACS PhD Retreat

The ACS PhD Retreat is an annual event for all PhD candidates (starters and seniors). This two-day event will consist of inspiring keynote speakers, workshops and pitches from your peers, focusing on cardiovascular sciences, but also on inspiring stories beyond. The event is free of charge and includes hotel stay and food and drinks.

Upcoming ACS PhD Retreat: the ACS PhD Retreat that was planned for March 2022 has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 measures.

PhD afternoons

Twice a year the ACS Education Committee organizes an afternoon specifically for ACS PhD candidates. It includes a lunch and a discussion about an item chosen by your peers, such as how to make better figures, how to improve your statistic and how to make a good poster. We will announce the events through the ACS website and newsletter. The PhD afternoons are mandatory for all new ACS PhD candidates in Amsterdam UMC location VUmc, but are also available for location AMC PhD candidates.

Due to restrictions regarding COVID-19, events might be continued in a hybrid/digital setting. Please visit the events calendar page for the latest information.
