  • UMC Utrecht Academy



Manon Kluijtmans is professor at the University Medical Center Utrecht, where she holds the chair 'Education to Connect Science and Professional Practice'. As part of her education focussed chair she holds several positions at Utrecht University: a.o. Vice-rector Teaching and Learning, Academic Director of the Centre for Academic Teaching, and chair of the focus area Higher Education Research.

Her research focuses on two main topics:

  • Education of clinician-scientists, ideally equipped to make the much desired but often lacking connection between scientific research and care practice.
  • Professional development of university teachers, in order to make a connection between scientific theory and professional practice.

Manon has a specific interest in the theoretical perspectives of professional identity development and boundary crossing. A central question in her research is how to educate dual professionals to be brokers between different fields. She is a teacher in the MSc programme Clinical Health Sciences as well as in various advanced teacher-development programmes. Among other, she is involved in the UU-broad Educational Leadership Programme and Senior Fellow Programme, the UMCU-based Teaching Scholars Program, and the international IMEX programme.
