Our partners

We are delighted that so many enthusiastic professionals want to work with us. Where possible, we involve medical specialists, doctors training to be specialists and/or students in our research into professional performance & compassionate care. Our publications show that we are often successful.

We are also pleased when users of our measuring instruments want to talk to us about how the results can ‘hit home’ better in practice. We enjoy sharing our knowledge. Educationalists, policy advisers and executive advisers know where to find us too.

By definition, scientific research is a team effort. Here too, we work with the crème de la crème, usually when jointly supervising PhD students. There are professors we have worked with for many years now. Our research partners include Prof.dr. Onyebuchi Arah (UCLA, Los Angeles, USA), Prof.dr. Albert Scherpbier (UM), Prof.dr Cees van der Vleuten (UM), Prof.dr. Mirjam Oude-Egbrink (UM), Prof.dr Sylvia Heeneman (UM), Prof.dr Erik Heineman (UMCG) and Prof.dr Debbie Jaarsma (UMCG). Renee Stalmeijer, PhD (UM) is also co-supervising some PhD students.

The research group PP&CC has no exclusive association with professional supervisors or coaches. As an academic institution, it befits us to have an independent position. There are, however, a number of professionals who are very familiar with the instruments we have developed, who are prepared to contribute ideas for our research into doctors’ functioning and performance and with whom we have built up a good partnership over the years. In other words, professionals who are just as enthusiastic as we are about wanting to create doctors with cool heads and warm hearts.

  • We met Nathalie Hugenholtz, PhD, through our physicians’ well-being project. She is a positive and reliable collaborator. She conducted her own PhD research at the AMC and knows the academic and medical world from inside out. She is a coach for faculty and residents. Their well-being (i.e. burnout and  job crafting) is in good hands with her.
