As a scientific researcher you conduct research into the way in which GPs in training reflect on their experiences. Reflection is an important part of the GP training, but little is known about how and what AIOs reflect in practice. The research focuses on making reflection concrete and valuable during GP training. To this end we make video and audio recordings of learning situations, which we analyze with a combination of qualitative methods (Discursive Psychology and Content Analysis).

It is intended that you, supported by the project group, collect and analyze the aforementioned data. In addition, you are responsible for presenting and publishing the results and maintaining good contacts with both the participants in the study and the staff of the General Practitioner. You ensure that your knowledge in the field of research methods remains up-to-date. The intention is that the research leads to a promotion after four years.

You are working at Erasmus MC's General Practice Training. The project is a collaboration between the GP courses at Erasmus MC and the VU medical center (VUmc).

The three-year general practitioner training is a medical specialization after the medical exam. The doctors in training work 4 days a week in a general practice under the supervision of an experienced general practitioner.
