We are proud to announce our VdGM Conference Amsterdam 2021 Digital Exchange.
Date: Thursday 8th of July 2021
Time: 09.00-13.00 +1 GMT (Amsterdam Time)
Are you interested in the Dutch General Primary Care System? Join our Digital Conference Exchange! Three hosts will welcome you in their practises and will show you their daily worklife. We will follow and talk to a GP working in the heart of Amsterdam, a colleague who is working “rural” on one of our famous Islands in the north of the Netherlands and we will show our unique 24 hour GP-services. Of course we will present our Dutch system and we will focus on international dialogue.
Don’t miss this interactive and connecting Digital Exchange program and register now!
After the program you will receive a certificate of attendance.

Duco van Eden, GP with specialisation in tropical medicine. After a few years of living and working abroad, and afterwards GP training in an urban setting, me and my family found a home on the scenic island Terschelling. It’s one of the few places in the Netherlands where you can practice rural medicine. Also functioning as a small emergency room, daily practices in our practice include trauma, x-ray, echography and antenatal care. Peak season tourism brings it’s challenges, keeping up high quality care for the local people, besides the ongoing flow of visitors.
Brigitte Augustijn, I am a GP working as a locum in The Hague. Before my specialisation as a GP, I was a MD in Tropical Medicine and International Healthcare working with different NGOs, for example Doctors without Borders. I believe in access to healthcare for everyone and I try to pursue this in my current professional career. The “Doctors Post” is one of these institutions that anyone can reach out to during out of office hours when there is a medical emergency.
Steven van de Vijver, I am Dutch GP interested in primary health around the world. I have worked in the past for MSF in Congo and did my PhD on cardiovascular prevention in the slums of Nairobi. Currently I am working in a practice in Amsterdam which is based in a hospital in order to create synergies and innovations between primary and secondary health care. The next few years I hope to develop, implement and evaluate digital health interventions for the most vulnerable, in various settings (from Amsterdam to refugees in Lesbos).
