After all, by focusing on science, knowledge and innovation, we can best advance the Netherlands.

Theatercollege: Marcel Levi


During this theatre lecture, he shares his views on healthcare in the Netherlands. How do we keep healthcare well-performing, accessible and affordable in the future? What lessons can we learn from 18 months of corona pandemic?

He shares his lessons for leadership, drawing on his years of experience as a doctor, professor and administrator. He stresses the importance of maintaining a human touch throughout the process. Ask yourself, how can you create a corporate culture in which talent can flourish, innovation happens naturally, and people can bring out the best in themselves? He also warns against subspecialisation and emphasises the need for a drastic reorganisation of healthcare. Designed by the medical practitioners themselves, to be precise.
-|-
He believes in the power of professionals taking the lead and, if it were up to him, he'd have our hospitals maintain a system of 'total football', rather than the usual 'catenaccio' being played. And winning is more important than competing. Results matter. Why be satisfied with a 6 when you can also get an 8? Achievements should be something to strive for in life. And above all: Try thinking outside the box for a change as well!

Marcel Levi makes complex matters simple and is not afraid to speak out about malpractices. This theatre lecture is just like his columns: well-founded and unapologetic.

After the lecture, there will be a meet & greet with Marcel Levi.

About Marcel Levi

As a professor of medicine and an internist, Marcel Levi is certainly not your average doctor. He was named Best Internist in the Netherlands three times. He managed the Academic Medical Centre Amsterdam (formerly AMC) and prepared the merger with the VUmc. Because of his management of this hospital, news magazine Elsevier named him Dutchman of the Year in 2016. Levi has published about 750 scientific articles, is a member of the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences and the British Royal College of Physicians, and has donated a kidney to a stranger. He is a man of practice: he still works at the hospital for one and a half days a week. He also wrote two books, Artsen met verstand van zaken (2016) and Besturen in een dokterjas (2017), and has a weekly column in Het Parool and a monthly column in HP/De Tijd.
