About Panacea

About Panacea
The Medical Faculty Association Panacea (M.F.V. Panacea) is the largest medical faculty association in the Netherlands and also one of the largest study associations in Groningen. 99% of Groningen Medicine students are members of the M.F.V. Panacea! This almost goes without saying, given the many benefits that membership brings. 

Activities of the M.F.V. Panacea
The M.F.V. Panacea is known for its diverse range of activities. For example, the M.F.V. Panacea organizes various get-togethers, a grand gala every year, the trip abroad and winter sports trip, a musical every two years and many more cultural and sporting activities. That the M.F.V. Panacea is a study association is shown by its enormous involvement in education and the organization of study-related events. Every year a big Career Event is oraganized and different wokshops and courses are given. These include a workshop on suturing, first aid or blood sampling. 

Become an active member of the M.F.V. Panacea
Of course it is great fun to participate in all these activities, but it is even more fun to organize them yourself. The M.F.V. Panacea has over 30 committees in which you can be active during your studies. When you join a committee, you and an entire group are responsible for organizing one or more activities, creating a product or evaluating education, depending on which committee you do. On this committee page you will find a brief description of all the committees that make up the M.F.V. Panacea. Many committees have a regular committee night each week, on this night we often have dinner together, drinks and meetings. You will soon find that your committee becomes a close group of friends. At the end of the year all committee members are thanked for their efforts by means of a free barbecue, a free thank-you dinner and the opportunity to join the Active Members Weekend. Being an active member of Panacea provides relaxation alongside your studies, a close group of friends, and also looks good on your CV.

The M.F.V. Panacea is a study association. Education and the quality of education are of paramount importance to us.
