Dr. Froukelien Van der Mooren obtained her medical degree in 2003 at Maastricht University. During her studies she did an internship in a rural hospital in Pakistan and an elective in a GP practice in Canada. Whilst abroad, she increased her skills working as a junior doctor in a paediatric and surgery department.
As she enjoys all fields of medicine she decided to become a general practitioner. In 2007 she completed her vocational training in general practice at Leiden University and worked in several GP practices in The Hague thereafter. In 2013 she moved with her family to Kazakhstan where she worked as a general practitioner/chief medical officer for an international clinic serving the international community until 2018. In 2019 she started working at the IHCH as a general practitioner.
Being a former expat herself helps her to understand what it is like to live in a foreign country and deal with different health care systems. Froukelien lives in The Hague with her husband and two boys.
