Prof. dr. M.J.M.H. Lombarts

Position: Professor
Main activities: Research
Specialisation: Professional Performance of Physicians
foto M.J.M.H. Lombarts is one of the AMC Principal Investigators
Focus of research:

All activities can be summarised as research on 'Professional Performance of Physicians'.  


Studies include physicians' performance evaluation systems in Graduate Medical Education and patient care delivery, such as the SETQ system (System for Evaluation of Teaching Qualities), DRECT (Dutch Residency Educational Climate Test), TeamQ (teamwork in teachnig teams) and INCEPT/IFMS (Individual Performance Medical Specialists). For details visit: www.professionalperformanceonline.nl

Other fields of intrest are feedback, work engagement, empathy & compassion, professionalism, physicians' performance concerns, and performance governance.

In this field of research the focus is on measuring, explaining and improving the quality of graduate medical education and patient care quality. Various Professional Performance (PP) assessment systems have been developed (see above) and are being offered to hospitals and specialist groups/residency programs.
Over 60 teaching institutions and/or approx. 10.000 teaching faculty and residents are participating in the PP program. The research group is investigating the various aspects of the systems and their broader contexts - including the role of the peer mentor in discussing performance feedback - in order to create new knowledge on understanding high quality teaching performance/residency training and its link with clinical performance of faculty.

Research programmes

Physicians' Professional Performance

Within the professional performance (pp) program physicians' performance is under investigation, focussing on (i) measurement of their performance (including development of relevant measures), (ii) explaining perormance levels and (iii) interventions to maintain or enhance performance. 

Physicians' pp is defined as 'that what physicians are seen to do in (daily) practice'. Studies are directed towards clinical performance and/or teaching performance. One of the program's main purposes is to unravel and provide scientific evidence on (understanding) the relationship between the quality of PGME/residency training and the quality and safety of patient care.

In terms of impact and valoarisation the pp program so fare has resulted in the development of multiple performance evaluation systems which are included in a web-based platform - Professional Performance Online (PPO) - to be used for assessment purposes by individual medical specialsts, residents, clinivcal departements/training programs and hospitals. Up til date, over 5000 faculty and 5000 residents representing approx. 65 hospitals have used one or more PPO evaluations systems.
