For some of us, studentlife is only about lectures, tutor groups and study books. However, students who look more closely will notice that you can gain a lot more from your study years than just a diploma! Panacea gives you the opportunity to relax and make social contacts. Next to that, our association allows you to develop your interests and to orient outside your own working area…

M.F.V. Panacea
The Medical Faculty Association Panacea (M.F.V. Panacea) was founded in 1987 and looks after the interests of the medical students in Groningen. Anyone who studies medicine in Groningen can become a member of the M.F.V. Panacea. The association, which is named after the Greek goddess of remedy, is currently seated in the basement of the faculty building.

Study association
As can be concluded from the paragraph above, Panacea is a faculty- or study association. On one hand she looks after the students’ interests by, among other things, evaluating the curriculum and conversing with the faculty and the teachers, but on the other hand she tries to give something extra by organising all different kinds of activities. 

Hence Panacea is definitely not a student association. This means that you can become a member of faculty association Panacea and a student association at the same time.
