Wetenschapslunch Psychiatry meetings by Zoom

Posted by Admin on September 2020
Seminars Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and until further notice these meetings unfortunately can only take place virtually.

Please note that Zoom doesn’t work within the Erasmus workplace environment. Zoom can be installed on smartphones, tablets, laptops and other pc’s, you can download it through the app store or website: www.zoom.us.

! We would like to ask all participants to put their microphone on mute while joining the meeting and their video on as it’s much more pleasant for presenters to see the participants faces.

If you have questions during the presentation, please let the speaker know by chat so he/she’ll be able to ask you to either unmute yourself or to ask the question by chat. Preferably, speakers would number their slides to make it easier in case of questions to refer to a certain slide.
We would like to start the meeting exactly on time at 12 h so we ask presenters to login approximately 10 minutes in advance to make sure their slide sharing settings are correct. Moreover, particularly given the digital platform, we would strongly ask everyone not to share any patient sensitive data during these meetings!

Please find below the Zoom details for the meeting:

Erasmus University Rotterdam
Starting your PhD
From molecule to human to society and back

Is the healthcare provided in Rotterdam the same as in a village? How can we detect arteriosclerosis at an early stage? How are creativity and psychiatric disorders connected? How does air pollution affect unborn children? Erasmus MC and Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management work together on societal issues concerning health. The forces of clinical science, health science and biomedical science are combined here.
