Lisanne Welink studied medicine at the University Medical Center Utrecht from 2007 until 2014. After graduating, she successively worked as a resident at a rehabilitation ward in a nursing home and at the educational center of the faculty of medicine in Utrecht, where she participated in a international research project on learning analytics called 'WATCHME'.
In March 2016 she started her PhD project titled 'Together for Evident Evidence', which is supervised by dr. M.E.L. Bartelink, dr. E. de Groot, prof.dr. R.A.M.J. Damoiseaux. Since this is a joint project with the University of Gent, Belgium, she is also supervised by dr. P. Pype and prof. dr. M. Deveugele from the University of Gent.
She combines this PhD-project with the Vocational Training in General Practice (AIOTHO) at the University Medical Center Utrecht.
