Dr. Mihaela Raicu, pathologist (Nieuwegein) 

“Pathology is a team sport; sharing much with colleagues and endlessly learning from each other.”

Matthijs van Oosterhout (1966) studied Medicine at the University of Amsterdam (1992). He then earned his PhD at the Physiology department of Maastricht University (1999). His research focused on the effects of pacemakers on the structure of the heart. His final year of PhD research was used to gain clinical experience at the Child Medicine department at the Academic Hospital Maastricht. After his speciality training in the University Medical Centre Utrecht (2003), he continued working there as a pathologist for another five years, focusing on Heart and Lung Pathology. Since 2007 he has been working for the St. Antonius Hospital Utrecht/Nieuwegein. He is also associated with the Zuwe Hofpoort Hospital as a senior staff member. Moreover, he is currently active in the training of speciality trainees (trainer), with the senior staff (member of the staff partnership board), and for several years he actively participated in the professional interest committee of the NVVP.
