Short introduction

Ine Vos currently supports the research in education in VUmc School of Medical Sciences for one day a week and works for three days as a policy officer in team Innovation and Quality of the institute. She retrieves data from the student administration systems and helps the researchers in finding the right target group for their research and interpretation of their findings. Ine holds a special interest in the effect of selection methods on student success in medicine and factors related to study success and drop out.

Research interests

Selection in medical education, study success, drop out.
