New episode podcast TjongeJonge: Hilde Verbeek on PhD supervision

October 10, 2023

Hilde Verbeek talks about the evaluation of PhD supervisors.

PhD supervisors work closely with candidates in shaping their scientific projects. It is therefore important to be approachable. At the Department of Health Services Research at Maastricht University, PhD candidates get several opportunities to evaluate their supervisors and to work together with them as academics. ‘Extreme hierarchy threatens the quality of our scientific work’ says Hilde Verbeek. In this episode she explains how these evaluations have – sometimes in an unexpected way – helped her become a better supervisor.

Hilde Verbeek is Professor of Long-Term Care Environments at Maastricht University
