PHD Candidate - Medical
L.P.T. (Linda) Joosten MSc
  • Department of General Practice



Linda Joosten studied medicine at Utrecht University and obtained her medical degree in 2016.
She started her PhD programme at the Julius Center of the UMC Utrecht in January 2017. The focus of her research is to evaluate whether the impact of a strategy aimed at switching INR-guided vitamin K antagonist management to a NOAC-based treatment strategy (non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants) is superior in terms of the occurrence of major or clinically relevant non-major bleeding complications in frail elderly patients with atrial fibrillation (FRAIL-AF study). This multicenter pragmatic randomized controlled clinical trial is supervised by dr. Geert-Jan Geersing, dr. Frans Rutten and prof. dr. Arno Hoes. 
Linda Joosten will combine her PhD programme with the Postgraduate Master of Epidemiology at Utrecht University and the General Practice Vocational Training Programme in Utrecht.
