Physician assistant dermatology Kelly Kwa has been working at Jan van Goyen Medical Center since March 2021. She studied medicine at the VU in Amsterdam and will receive her PhD in October 2021 with her research: 'Scratching beneath the surface: innovative treatment modalities for burn patients'
Kelly: 'I like the variety within the profession, both in patients and diseases and in carrying out medicinal or surgical treatments. I think the most important thing is that a patient is satisfied in the broadest sense of the word: that he or she has been heard, helped and has an improvement in complaints.'
Kelly won several awards. For example, she was winner of the Martinus van Marum prize for medicine 2021 and winner of the Science Day Amsterdam-UMC 2019.
