About me

Dr. Bart Torensma

Born in 1985 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and since 2009 working as a freelance Aneasthesiologist assistant (CRNA).

During my work as a freelance Aneasthesiologist assistant, I wanted to increase my knwoledgde in the medical world, which is why I started the Master of Science Clinical Epidemiology (AMC, Amsterdam) study in which I have been working since 2014.

Since 2015 I was a PhD candidate at the LUMC Leiden, the Netherlands. Topic: “Peri-operative care in Obesity”

I gain a lot of experience in different hospitals and clinics, so that's how I continue to increase my knowledge and skills.

Characteristics of mine are: Interested, keen intuition, good listening, critical, result-oriented, disciplined and innovative.
