The National Knowledge Test is compulsary for all GP-trainees twice a year. The National Skills Test is compulsary once for first year GP-trainees. 


Coach in the Master Programme  

Within the scope of the competency Professional Development in the first year of the Master Programma, Anita is a coach for two groups of 12 students each (4th years medical students). For one year these junior clerks join two-hours sessions. One hour is being spent on learning by reflecting and sharing personal work experiences. The second hour is on medical dilemmas of a fixed topic, including cultural differences, death and dying, sexual harassment and making a medical error. In advance they read about the topic and discuss it with their peers.  During this year the clerks work on their portfolio, which includes an analysis of their perceived strengths and weaknesses.


Continuing medical education

Regularly, Anita is invited to give workshops in continuing-education courses and at conferences for general practitioners in the Netherlands and abroad.
