A previous  intern, Tijn Jorissen, about his experience at Terumo Europe: 


“Terumo gave me the opportunity to do an internship in difficult corona times, for which I am very grateful to them. On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised by their professional approach and by the fact that the opinions of all interns really matter. I gained the work experience that I needed, even though the whole internship was remote. This also had some benefits because it taught me a lot about effective communication online.”
