Study advisor GSMS master programmes, teacher/trainer personal development of students and PhD's.


Study advisor: I'm the study advisor for students of the master programmes of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences (MMIT & CPE and related tracks)

: In addition, I'm working for SCOPE; the center of expertise of personal development, in the UMCG. We develop and provide education related to student's personal and professional development. Topics addressed are, amongst others, socialisation, professional identity development, values, core qualities and keeping a healthy balance in life. Our education is experiental-oriented, aiming to reach another way of learning by using interactive and creative teaching methods. From a mere cognitive focus back to experiencing, gaining insights about yourself and your social context, and being inspired.

Research: I have finished my PhD thesis in the domain of educational and organizational change. I am fascinated with change in organisations; how people respond, the dynamics that occur, and the complexities of organizing change for those in charge, the change leaders. My PhD thesis particularly focuses on the complexities of organizing change in medical schools' undergraduate curricula.

Topics PhD thesis: undergraduate curriculum change, medical education, complexity, challenges and strategies of change leaders, situational awareness, governance, the role of local institutional contexts in international curriculum development projects.
