Myth: A GP mainly treats common colds and has to refer more complex cases to the hospital

Myth: A GP mainly treats common colds and has to refer more complex cases to the hospital

It is not just the medical students who often see GPs as “middlemen”, says GP and researcher Jochen Cals. Many patients think the same.  Daily practice is completely different. “Research shows that we deal with almost 95 per cent of the complaints ourselves, even the complex cases. It is only the tip of the iceberg that en...

Does Lagakari have many couples, the prof asks

Does Lagakari have many couples, the prof asks

No, Angeniet Helwig didn’t spend hours cleaning her room; she did remove some beer mats with messages of kissing, cuddling and boozing from the wall. Excuse me? Yes, that is a tradition at Lagakari – we’ll come back to the cuddling later. Helwig lives on the Grote Gracht, in a building that houses more than forty students. Perfec...

Opening of the academic year: drum rolls and fanfare

Opening of the academic year: drum rolls and fanfare

How do you organise an opening of the academic year where the audience doesn’t fall asleep? When students proposed organising this year’s programme themselves, Maastricht University president Martin Paul, never a big fan of these sorts of festivities, jumped at the chance. That would liven things up, he figured. He was right....

“Europe! Practice what you preached!”

Myth: Dutch judges should punish more severely because that would make society safer

The following criminal case dates from a few years ago. While a woman from Venray (Limburg) is sitting on a bench in the park, she is hit hard on the head twice with a stick. The assailant then steals her mobile phone. In the appeal court, the judge sentenced the accused to nine years imprisonment – instead of half of that, as the initial cou...

Attempted Adulthood

August 2015 “And that’s my rental contract.” At this point I’m pretty sure the bank teller can see me sweating through my pressed shirt. I’m good at cost-benefit analyses, but apparently not so much at ‘likelihood of sweat-stains to professional attire’ ratios. It’s too hot for what I’m weari...

“Do you still enjoy life, with four women at home?”

“Burgers are always good!” Sjoerd van Dijk calls from the kitchen as he does his final check: “Onions in the pan, potatoes in the oven, pasta salad, tomatoes.” Tonight’s guest – Professor Philip Vergauwen, dean of the School of Business and Economics – had already shown up at the Noormannensingel a week ear...

Return to the mothership

Return to the mothership

‘They’ve all come to look for America’ sing Simon and Garfunkel wistfully. This is a feeling I could definitely get on board with, in this case even literally as I climbed the steps of the airplane bound for San Francisco. This summer I wanted to understand this country that supposedly makes up half my origin. Armed with my Americ...
