When you live in Amsterdam it is necessary that you register with a doctor in your new student city. How nice would it be if this is a GP who knows everything about students and where it is no problem that you move within Amsterdam during your student days.
The UvA and HvA have special student doctors, with a practice right in the center, near the Munt. Called today, an appointment tomorrow. They have evening consultation hours, you can request a repeat prescription via the internet and ask questions to the doctor by email. If you think of a bladder infection or perhaps an STD, you can walk in for a test or make an appointment via the internet.
The student doctors obviously know everything about contraception, STDs and study-related problems. In addition, tropical vaccinations via the student doctors are the most advantageous.
