Research Programs


Dorien Zwart, M.D., Ph.D, is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of General Practice in the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care at University Medical Center Utrecht. She also practices as a Family Physician at the Primary Health Care Center De Bilt.Zwart's research primarily focuses patient safety and quality in general practice, and within this scope, she is developing and supervising a research portfolio as part of healthcare innovation research in Julius Center of Health Science and Primary Care. This portfolio includes projects on transitional safety, medication safety and diagnostic safety, respectively. Current projects are: theTransitional Incident Prevention Program (TIPP), which centers on safety in patient transitions between primary and secondary care, a trial on pharmacotherapy optimization through integration of a non-dispensing pharmacist in a primary care team (POINT) and a study aiming at analysis and improvement of telephonic triage of patients with complaints that are suspect for acute cardiovascular disease (Safety First). Beside her research on patient safety, she co-supervises the academic medical education research within her department, where, as head of curricular education, she is responsible for innovation and development of the bachelor's and master’s general practice program as part of the study of medicine. Focus on interprofessional learning and patient centeredness bridges her research work in patient safety with medical education. Zwart received her medical degree from the University of Groningen, her medical specialty degree from the University Medical Center Utrecht and her doctorate from the University of Utrecht.
