We are looking for highly motivated participants who are interested in movement (disorders), specifically the fields of orthopaedics, trauma surgery and sports medicine to participate in our summer school.


Students and post-graduates with a background in any study with a focus on movement and movement disorders (e.g. medicine, biomedical sciences, movement sciences, biomedical technology, physical therapy) are encouraged to apply.



All lectures and workshops are taught in English. If you want to join, make sure you can freely express yourself in English to enable proper understanding and stimulate group interaction. No formal English language test is required.


For most (European) participants it is not necessary to obtain a visa. In some cases, depending on your nationality, you will need to apply for a so-called Schengen visa (short-stay visa). Check out the list of countries to see if you need a visa and find out more on how to apply for a Schengen Visa on the Dutch government’s website. Please note that you can only apply for a visa after you have been admitted. If needed, the summer school coordinator can provide an invitation letter.


Number of participants

The maximum number of participants in the summer school is capped at around 15-20.
