Connection to iMERR

Mario Veen is Assistant Professor Educational Research at the Department of General Practice of Erasmus MC, Rotterdam. He has a PhD in Discursive Psychology and Technology Assessment (2011) and a background in philosophy and the humanities. Mario specializes in interdisciplinary approaches to educational research. His research, often in collaboration with iMERR, focuses on achieving a balance between ‘technical’ and ‘human’ aspects of medical education: How can reflection contribute to education, without becoming a tick-box exercise that engenders ‘reflective zombies’?; How can we systematically examine unquantifiable phenomena such as empathy? How can we prepare trainees to competently assess future medical technology?
