Yuri van der Does

Yuri van der Does studied medicine at Utrecht University. After graduation, he worked in several emergency and critical care settings. In 2011, he started as a physician in the emergency department of the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam. He completed his residency in emergency medicine and currently works here as an attending emergency physician. During his medical education, Yuri worked on a number of research projects, ranging from medical ethics to psychiatric epidemiology. In the Erasmus MC he investigated noninvasive techniques for assessing hemodynamic status in emergency department triage. As a resident Yuri started together with Maarten Limper, Eric van Gorp and emergency physician Pleunie Rood on a validation project of the biomarker procalcitonin in the emergency department. The project developed in a PhD track and was named HiTEMP, and covered the diagnosis and treatment of emergency department patients with fever.
