Head of the Ultrasound Group at CAM AAU

I am a medical doctor with clinical experience from both hospitals and general practice. I work part-time as a GP locum and I combine my clinical work in general practice with research, quality development and teaching. For the past eight years, I have been working as a researcher at Center for General Practice in Aalborg with a main focus on the use of ultrasound in general practice. I have made thirteen scientific peer-reviewed publications concerning ultrasound use in primary care and a PhD dissertation on the same topic: The use of point-of-care ultrasonography in general practice. Aalborg University Press 2020. ISBN (online): 978-87-7210-584-0

I have developed educational programs for appetizer courses for ultrasound-novices and basic ultrasound courses for general practitioners which have been implemented across Denmark. In addition, I have also developed a pregraduate educational programs for medical students regarding ultrasound teaching. I focus on learning as a process over time and in my teaching, I tend to use didactic tools such as flipped-classroom and transfer to ensure the transition of knowledge from the teaching session to clinical practice.

I believe that every clinician will be using point-of-care ultrasound in the examination of patients in the future and I strive to contribute to a foundation of knowledge about appropriate use of the technology.
