Mario Veen is Assistant Professor Educational Research. He has a PhD in Discursive Psychology and Technology Assessment (2011) and a interdisciplinary background in philosophy, social science and the humanities.

Mario specializes in interdisciplinary approaches to educational research. His research focuses on achieving a balance between ‘technical’ and ‘human’ aspects of medical education: How can reflection contribute to education, without becoming a tick-box exercise that engenders ‘reflective zombies’?; How can we systematically examine unquantifiable phenomena such as empathy and professional identity development?; What competencies do GP residents need to critically assess the impact on patient care of future medical technology?
