20 YEARS

JULIUS CENTER

WHAT HAS BECOME OF OUR PHD STUDENTS

UMC Utrecht

Julius Center


Preface

This is a unique initiative on

the occasion of the 20 years

anniversary of the Julius

Center. All PhD students who

defended their thesis between

December 1, 1996 and

December 31, 2016 with a (co)

promotor appointed at the

Julius Center were invited to

join this PhD cohort and to

share with us their current

whereabouts. Unfortunately

we were not able to retrieve

any information of 10 out of

538 PhD students (< 2%). A

recent photo was sent to us by

67% of all PhD students. This

overview not only shows the

enormous scientific output of

the Julius Center, but also your

brilliant and diverse careers.

Taken together, they cover all

disciplines in health care, from

psychiatry, general practice to

radiology and internal medicine.

But you are also active in

health research, teaching,

consultancy or in pharmaceutical

industry.

We are proud on your achievements

and hope not to be too

conceited if we hold the Julius

Center responsible for this

result. For many of you the first

career steps started here and

your thesis defense acted as a

flywheel. This was reciprocal:

with each defense the Julius

center increased her expertise

and knowledge and grew to

the well known and famous

center it nowadays is. When we

started this initiative we called

it the brain drain of the Julius

Center. No doubt, intelligent

brains have left the center! But

you also scientifically fed the

remaining staff and thus are

responsible for its current

success. We owe you.

We enjoyed reading your

current positions and studying

your pictures. So many ‘aha’

and ‘oh yes’ experiences, so

little ‘oh no’.

We do hope this initiative does

not end here. In 5 years there is

another milestone of the Julius

Center. If you know colleagues

currently missing or if data are

not correct help us to improve

the famous Julius PhD cohort.

We all know the definition of a

cohort: once in you can never

get out!

For now: enjoy.
