We embrace differences. And if there is one organization that can draw on differences, it is Amsterdam UMC with its very diverse patient groups and 17,000 colleagues. There is no such thing as a typical Amsterdam UMC employee. Thanks for that! Those differences make the difference. They give us a better understanding of the world around us. We are better able to offer inclusive education and conduct innovative research. We are better able to connect with our patients. And our role models? They are all different but mostly just themselves.
