Bart Torensma (CEO)

Born in 1985 in Amsterdam, Netherlands

My Qualities:

I am a dedicated professional with a keen intuition and a deep-rooted interest in my field. My strong listening skills and critical mindset allow me to conduct thorough analyses and achieve my objectives. I’m disciplined and consistently seek innovative approaches in my work.

Expanding Horizons:

Following a successful career as a freelance anesthesia assistant, I felt a calling to expand my knowledge and confront new challenges in the medical world. This led me to the Master’s program in Clinical Epidemiology, where I’ve actively applied my skills. I’ve also had the opportunity to further develop my competencies with my Ph.D.c research at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), focusing on perioperative care for patients with obesity, which I hope to complete in 2024.

Teaching and Speaking Engagements:

In addition to my research, I regularly deliver lectures on epidemiology and data management. I possess a wealth of knowledge about the brain and stress management which I enthusiastically share in my teachings. Furthermore, I am a frequent speaker at conferences, using these platforms to share insights and advances in the field.
