The University Medical Centre Utrecht’s observership programme allowed refugees who were living in the Netherlands to improve their clinical, intercultural and research skills by following a medical summer school and a clinical observership at the hospital. The varied and interactive programme gave students the time to think about their future and involved them in an academic environment. This poster presents some of the knowledge we gained from working with international students at the hospital.
