We are pleased to welcome Niek van der Hoek who is a visiting medical student from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Niek is in his final year of medical school and will be completing a 6 month research internship with our MacOrtho research team. He will be working on a study investigating the interpretation and the accuracy of online information used by patients with fractures, supervised by Dr. Bill Ristevski at MacOrtho and former MacOrtho fellow Dr. Ydo Kleinlugtenbelt in the Netherlands.
Niek says: "At the Centre for Evidence-Based Orthopaedics I hope to create a strong foundation for my current research and for future high quality research. I hope to learn how to write and publish an article for scientific journals."
