Article Writing Retreat

Course description:

This writing retreat is a unique offer to PhD students, who find it difficult to get 'concentration-time', e.g. because they have young children or because their work station is busy and they are expected to react also to other needs than those directly related to their PhD project. 

The course is suitable for those who need need peace to write an article, to deal with reviewers' comments, or to work on his/her thesis. It would be a good idea first to have participated in an article structuring course or something similar.

During the retreat, you will be given a room with a bed and a desk. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served and the surroundings are suitable for walks and runs and there are some resource persons there to assist with document preparation and language. It is possible to seek up others, to ask for assistance or stay locked up in the room.

After the application deadline, applicants will be asked to provide a motivation letter, explaining why they require this course and the twenty most 'suitable' persons will be given a place, which is sponsored by the Graduate Programme in Clinical Medicine.

You are expected to participate all five days and four nights.

Only PhD students enrolled at the Faculty of Health Sciences can apply for this course.

Intended learning outcome:

At the end of your stay you are expected to have attained your own goal(s) for the week.
