2/ Internship:

July 2000-July 2003

During the last 3 years of my medical studies, I received clinical training in all the main fields of Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics and Obstetrics at teaching hospitals affiliated to the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels) Laarbeeklaan 101, 1090 Brussels, Belgium). As a student I was responsible for clerking and the day-to-day management of the patients. As a student I was also first on-call, including during my night duties, for the speciality I was working for.
I gained experience in neurosurgery during my internship in the neurosurgery ward of Dr.LF.De Waele, Dr.H.Colle (AZ St-Lucas Ziekenhuis, Groenebriel 1, 9000 Ghent, Belgium). July-September 2001, September 2002-February 2003).
I had additional practice in the neurosurgery unit of Professor Dr.D’Haens (Free University Brussels); March 2001, January-April 2002, July-September 2002, May-July 2003).
