ASAP (Association of Amsterdam UMC PhD Candidates) is the association for PhD students of the Amsterdam UMC, founded in February 2021. ASAP organizes a variety of activities throughout the year, where you can learn, develop yourself, have fun and meet fellow PhD candidates – for example, the Science Night, Summer drinks, Career Event, and PhD thesis Printer’s Fair. Additionally, ASAP is involved in the training for PhD candidates: a delegate of the ASAP board is member of the board of the Graduate School, and participates in the evaluation of PhD courses. Furthermore, ASAP participates in the Dutch PhD students association (PNN).

We believe that meeting other PhD candidates is important to expand your network outside of your comfort zone. You can learn from your fellow PhD candidates: many experience the same difficulties as you, or have found a way to overcome them. So get (or give) your tips & tricks, share your passion and frustrations, or just have a laugh about it all over beers at one of the ASAP events.

ASAP membership is free! Sign up for our newsletters with up to date information about upcoming events. In addition to facebook, you can find us on Instagram (@asap_amsterdamumc) and LinkedIn (ASAP Association of Amsterdam UMC PhD Candidates).

ASAP is supported by the Amsterdam UMC Doctoral School, which provides general information for PhD candidates, the doctorate and training and supervision.
