Editor in chief of The BMJ appointed honorary professor at CaRe research school

On 1 November, Maastricht University has appointed Dr Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal), as honorary professor on behalf of national research school CaRe (Netherlands School for Primary Care Research). “This is a unique situation because CaRe consists of a cooperation of four institutes in the Netherlands,” says Professor Dr Onno van Schayck, scientific director of CaRe.

Dr Godlee has been appointed at Maastricht University because its research institute CAPHRI (Care and Public Health Research Institute) hosts the secretariat of the CaRe research school.  CaRe’s mission is national research collaboration as well as support and coaching of promising young researchers in the field of public health and primary care. Dr Fiona Godlee is editor in chief of The BMJ, which is leading in the research field of CaRe.
