The surgery hosts junior doctors, in cooperation with the LUMC, training to become GPs – known in the Netherlands as “AIOS”. Traing to be a GP takes at least three years, of which the first and last years are followed in general practice. It may be therefore that there is either a first-or third-year AIOS employed at the surgery.
When you call for an appointment, you can if you want, ask the assistant to see either Dr Boender or the AIOS. As part of the training procedure, your doctor is aware of everything that is being discussed in regular discussions and consultations. Dr Boender – your own GP – supervises the actions of the AIOS.
Through years of experience as a GP, Dr Boender shares with a new generation of practitioners, knowledge and latest insights at the highest level. Strict requirements and a lively training policy ensure that our team can deliver the highest quality of care. The downside may be that you see every year new trainees. Of course you can also choose to make an appointment with Dr Boender.
Besides doctors in training, the practice also trains assistants. We hope that you, like us, see the value of educating the next generation of doctors and assistants.
