A wise man once wrote: “So perhaps the best thing to do is to stop writing Introductions and get on with the book.” Although there is no disagreeing with this statement, there are a few things to mention before kicking off the 3th edition of the Amsterdam Medical Student journal.
Starting with our latest additions. As our journal serves an educational purpose you might have noticed our new ‘Statistical solutions’- column, written by our AMSj statisticians. Each edition Birgit Witte and Rebecca Holman will elaborate on a statistical venture in order to increase, or freshen up, your statistical knowledge.
This same principle goes for our category ‘Radiology Image’. Suzanne Spijkers and Mario Maas are taking us back to the basic principles of Radiology. What is it that we should pay attention to while unraveling the black and white images of our patients? Our Radiology couple is determined to teach us.
And of course there is more. We are very proud to announce the first Amsterdam Medical student conference (AMSc)! The conference will take place in the spring of 2016, and provides medical students a platform to pitch their research, and more senior researchers the chance to teach and spot young talent.
Furthermore, we give a warm welcome to Malou Lugthart and Mehran Kamali as our new colleagues in the AMSc committee, and Sayf Faraj as our new general board member of the AMSj.
And last but certainly not least, we once again express our gratitude to our general- and editorial board for all their efforts in putting together this edition.
