- Academic Workplace Soma & Psyche – chaired by prof. Odile van den Heuvel, MD, PhD
In our academic workplaces clinicians and researchers closely collaborate. Several of our researchers also work as a psychiatrist or psychotherapist at GGZ inGeest or Amsterdam UMC/VUmc. Because of this, our scientific results can be easily implemented in clinical practice. The workplaces anxiety disorders, depression and old age psychiatry have recieved the quality mark TOPGGz.
