Progressief Medicijnen (ProMed) is the overarching advocacy body of the medical students of the University of Groningen in which students of different educational committees consult. Within Promed the students are being represented by amongst others: the Educational Committee (OCG), the Board of Pancea (M.F.V. Panacea), the Education and Research council (O&O-raad), the Exam Committee, IFMSA, the Masterraad, the Raad van Bestuur of the UMCG and the University Council.

ProMed proclaims the opinion of the student and has an important part in maintaining and improving the quality of medical education. Besides that ProMed participates in multiple meetings like the Interfacultair Medisch Studentenoverleg (IMS) and in multiple congresses, for example the NVMO-congress (Nederlandse Vereniging Medisch Onderwijs) in November and the IMS-congress in October. In this way ProMed stays informed of the developments in the field of medical education.

However Promed does not only participate in meetings and congresses. ProMed also organizes fun and educational activities! Together with ProDent (Dentistry) and ProMove (Movement sciences) ProMed organizes the Pro-activity. Furthermore ProMed organizes a dinner for students and staff, a Pubquiz and other fun activities!

On behalf of the M.F.V. Panacea the Educational Commissioner and the Master and Career Commissioner participate in ProMed meetings together with a deputy of the Masterraad.
Promed committed to provide every medine student with the best education! Do you have a question, a comment or do you want to join a meeting? Send an email to
