Dr. Pim Teunissen, MD, PhD, combines a career as a clinician with research in medical education. He is a maternal-fetal-medicine specialist at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam. He combines this with a position as professor of workplace learning in healthcare at the School of Health Professions Education (SHE) at Maastricht University. Dr. Teunissen uses his clinical experience to inform his research and vice versa. In his research he focuses on connecting concepts and methodologies from different scientific disciplines to pertinent issues within healthcare education. His research activities span the continuum from medical students to new consultants in a variety of specialties and he has published more than 75 scientific articles and book chapters related to workplace learning in healthcare.
