Curriculum Vitae

CV Arie Hasman.

He was born on february 1, 1945 in Papendrecht, the Netherlands. He studied physics and did his PhD work at the Technical University Delft. He got his PhD in 1971. From 1971 to 1974 he worked in the department Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine of the St Radboud hospital Nijmegen. From 1974 to1985 he worked in the department Medical Informatics of the Free University Amsterdam.
In 1985 he was appointed full professor in Medical Informatics at the University Maastricht. From 1991 to 2005 he was also part-time professor at the Technical University Eindhoven. In 2004 he was appointed full professor in Medical Informatics at AMC-UvA in Amsterdam. In february 2010 he retired.

Grants and honours

He was involved in a number of projects funded by the European Commttee: OpenLabs (a research project), EDUCTRA (education), IT-EDUCTRA (education), EUROMISE (education), MGT (research), TANDEM (research). For these projects he was co-applicant and for some also project leader. Also in the Netherlands he received grants for a number of projects which concerned either research or education.
He received a medal of honor from the University of Pilzn for his contributions to the development of medical informatics in the Czech Republic. He is honorary member of the Czech medical society J.E. Purkyne.
Also he is International Asscociate of ACMI, the American College of Medical Informatics.

He is editor emeritus of the International Journal of Medical Informatics and member of the Editorial Boards of:

• Computer methods and programs in biomedicine
• Methods of information in medicine
• The Journal of Informatics in Primary Care
• International Journal of Healthcare and Technology management

He is also member of the Editorial Board of the series Studies in Health Technology and Informatics, published by IOS Press.

He has been chairman of the Dutch Medical Informatics Society (VMBI) during six years.

He was Publication Officer of EFMI, the European Federation of Medical Informatics,

He was Vice-President Special Affairs of the International Medical Informatics Association.

He was chairman of the Scientific Programme Committee of MIE 2000, the EFMI conference held in Hannover.
He was one of the two chairmen of the Scientific Programme Committee of Medinfo 2001, the IMIA conference that was held in London.

Publications and PhD supervision

Arie Hasman published more than 400 articles and was author of a number of books. He has done research in the areas of databases, signal processing, image processing, decision support systems and education. He was supervisor of 54PhD candidates, who defended their thesis (see the Appendix).

He was chairman of the Educational Institute of the Medical Informatics Bachelor and Master Programme at the AMC-University of Amsterdam.
He was external examiner of the Medical Informatics programme of Trinity College in Dublin, of the Medical Informatics programme of the University College Dublin, both in Dublin and in Galway, Ireland. Also he was external examiner of the Medical Informatics programme of the University of Surrey, Great Britain.
He has lectured during a period of 10 years in Prague (in the context of the EU funded Euromise project).
He also was a member of various accreditation committees in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
