As Vice President of the Dutch Association of Medical Specialists (Federatie Medisch Specialisten) Cense was chairman of the writing group for the vision document ‘Medical Specialist 2025’. He has also been involved in the health programmes of the UGBS. With these experiences, Cense can make a significant contribution to education about and research on health care management and innovation.
