Robbrecht Marieke

PhD student WP4
Project Researcher
UGent, UAntwerpen

As a medical student, Marieke was highly interested in education and feedback, whereby she volunteered as a studoc (student-docent) in the communication lessons for the bachelor course during her master’s degree. In 2017, she graduated in Masters of Medicine and started as a post-graduate student in general practice at University of Antwerp. Mid 2018 she switched to be trained as a paediatrician, where she found her true passion. Interested in scientific research, but also in training by giving courses as an instructor in the youth movement, the SBO-Scaffold project puts all her interests together. From February 2020 on, she is working as a doctoral student for work package 4, focusing on mother-and-child health care. She continues to complete her clinical work through the University of Antwerp.

In addition, Marieke also obtained an Educational Master's degree in Health Sciences in July 2023. She is currently using the knowledge she gained in this course to strengthen her research more, but also to further optimise current practice.
