Call me Vee.


Founding CEO of Compendium Medicine.

From doctor to global change maker.

As a student, I had a massive stack of medical books. Surprisingly, my friends in different cities had equally impressive stacks, but with completely different study materials. It made me question why there are varying materials across universities in the Netherlands. Why are we all working on our own island?

Even as a doctor, I encountered this isolated mindset everywhere. Instead of seeking existing solutions, we tend to establish new committees on our own islands. But if we want to provide the best care, it's crucial to collaborate and ask for help. Time for a different approach. 


Bringing Healthcare Together

What if, from today, we would all start working together? Creating one compendium, in one language. Imagine all the time we would save, and how much more efficient we would be.

With Compendium Medicine we've united the most important medical knowledge in 35 specialties, all presented in the same way. Our method consists of using comprehensible illustrations for every medical condition, straightforward tables and many illustrations. It is visual, concise and to-the-point so you are able to memorise the study material more easily.
