      Today the Maastricht University’s Studium Generale organised a debate-café addressing “Access to Healthcare”.

      The 5 fellow physicians composing the panel, each with interesting background particularities, varying ages and specialties, discussed with us, the audience, the potential problems surrounding access to healthcare.

      It was a very educative experience and it was interesting to acknowledge the disparities in POVs.

      Studium Generale always organise events that are relevant and interesting! Once you’re here, keep this is mind!

      Have all a nice night!
