PhD defense - Dr. WU Zhouqiao

We are proud to announce that Dr. Zhouqiao WU, who has started his PhD during 2011 via China Scholarship Council (CSC), has successfully been granted the PhD within 3.5 years. Zhouqiao WU has obtained his bachelor and master degrees at Peking University, which is one of the top universities in China.

Afterwards, he came to the Netherlands and became a PhD at Erasmus Medical Center focusing his research on Gastrointestinal Surgery.

He mentioned that the most important element he found at Erasmus MC was the freedom to speak out.  He was able to discuss and "argue" with the Professor regarding certain topics before they agree with each other; this was hard to  imagine when he was in China.
