We advocate the rights of all PhD candidates on the institutional and national level
We aspire for high quality supervision and education
We organize social events to promote networking among fellow PhD candidates
We represent all the PhD candidates in Erasmus MC and our main goal is to stand up for their rights, may it be the rights to receive the highest quality supervision or the rights to have the best education. A PhD trajectory may often feel like an individual course, though many are faced with similar obstacles. Promeras functions as a platform for PhD candidates to connect with each other and offer aid to enquiries and issues that PhD candidates may face.
Promeras advises the Erasmus MC PhD Committee on the PhD Education Policy, and solicits attention for certain topics when needed. Within Promeras, several subcommittees exist to address specific matters such as mental health and issues international PhD candidates may encounter. We also organizes social events to promote networking within PhD candidates in Erasmus MC.
Promeras is a member of EPAR (Erasmus PhD Association Rotterdam) and PNN (PhD Network Netherlands). With regular meetings with the PhD representatives of other universities, we discuss and address matters on both the institutional and national level. We strive to learn from each other and together stand up to fight for the rights of all PhD candidates in the Netherlands.
