SEmester for MEdical Research Aachen (v-SEMERA)

Dear students,


Greetings from the Faculty of Medicine, RWTH Aachen University in Germany!

Are you interested in medical research, and do you enjoy working in an international setting? Our virtual SEmester for MEdical Research Aachen (v-SEMERA) might be the program you are looking for! 


It’s an English-taught research semester, fully held online provided by an all-virtual learning platform. This allows you a lot of flexibility: You can participate and still follow your studies. The semester is free of charge and open to all health profession students.


v-SEMERA enables you to acquire scientific skills in basic and clinical research. You can then apply those competencies to your own scientific project (e.g. a dissertation) under the supervision of a mentor. v-SEMERA features Keynotes by international experts. To connect with your international peers, we offer an intercultural social program.


The semester starts in September and there is only a limited number of places available. You can find more details on our website. Deadline is July 31.


We are looking forward to welcoming you!



Kind regards,

The v-SEMERA Team 


(in cooperation with the Centro Universitário Christus and the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia)
