UM bids farewell to Professor Knottnerus

26 October 2018

André Knottnerus, professor of General Practice at Maastricht University, delivered his valedictory lecture today (26 October). Professor Knottnerus is a former president of the Health Council of the Netherlands and former chair of the Scientific Council for Government Policy. In his 36 years at UM, he made important contributions to both the development of the Department of General Practice and the status of this branch of medicine far beyond Maastricht. Colleagues call him ‘by far the most talented researcher in Western European general practice’. Knottnerus was involved in the founding of CAPHRI, the UM research institute for public health and healthcare innovation. His scientific work focuses on clinical epidemiology and the use of applied research in everyday medicine, particularly in the field of general practice and other areas of extramural care.
