From the WONCA Editor: Interviews with three WONCA leaders

December, 2012

I hope you are enjoying exploring the new WONCA website. My best wishes for the festive season to all WONCA colleagues. In 2013, the website will continue to grow to better serve your needs but to end 2012, I present recent interviews with three WONCA leaders. For me, it was rewarding and fun doing these interviews so I hope they provide some interesting reading for those with some time to spare in the next month.

Prof Job Metsemakers

Prof Job FM Metsemakers, secretary of WONCA Europe for the last five years, is interviewed about himself and life as a family doctor in the Netherlands.
The WONCA Editor asking why WONCA colleagues might be interested in Job’s story. Job’s reply was: “After all, I am just an ordinary guy”. But most WONCA colleagues are not ordinary, so we leave it to the reader to decide.
