Leiden Oxford Transplantation Summer School (LOTS)
Due to the developments around the corona virus, the LOTS Summer School is cancelled this year.
The Leiden Oxford Transplantation Summer School, LOTS, is a collaboration between the university of Leiden and Oxford. The school is organised primarily for biomedical and medical students that are in the beginning of their studies and are interested in transplantation and (clinical) research.
Why this Summer School?
This course offers a unique opportunity to learn from leading academics and experts in the field of Organ Transplantation. The lectures and workshops are combined with small group assignments and debates about clinical transplant cases. The course also offers plenty of opportunities to network with fellow students from all over the world and teaching staff from Leiden University Medical Center and University of Oxford.

The summer school takes place in Leiden and lasts three and a half days in total. The school is set up for a small group of students (around 20 students in total) so there is plenty of interaction. During the summer school, you will learn about all aspects of transplantation and work with students from all around the world.
The program exists of interactive lectures, patient interviews, small group assignments and games about clinical transplant cases. In the end every group will write a proposal for scientific innovation to improve the outcome for transplant recipients. And of course, there is also time to have fun and get to know each other!
LOTS takes place at Wateringen, the Netherlands at Boerderij Dichtbij. On Sunday afternoon we will take a boat trip from Leiden University Medical Center to Wateringen. All lectures, social activities and accommodation will take place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning at Wateringen. On Wednesday afternoon we will take a bus back to Leiden.
