|Function||Professor Midwifery Science|
Dr. de Vries was appointed Professor at the Research Centre for Midwifery Science in 2010. His inaugural speech, ‘Midwives, obstetrics, fear and trust: A four-part invention’, was given on May 26, 2011, and marked the official beginning of his chair as a professor at the AVMU, appointed by Zuyd University at Maastricht University, with the two institutions collaborating to promote a more academic approach to the field of midwifery science.
Dr. de Vries spends three months each year at the AVMU in Maastricht. When in the United States, he uses the Internet to meet regularly with his colleagues in the Netherlands.
